This is a lovely ice-cream to make in early summer which combines the flavours of rhubarb and rose.



  • 600 g (1.5 lbs) Rhubarb Curd – you can either make your own (See my recipe for homemade Rhubarb Curd) or you can buy it in good supermarkets or food stores
  • 300 ml (Half a pint) double cream
  • A teaspoon of rosewater
  • A few drops of pink food colouring (optional)


  1. Whisk the cream until it forms soft peaks.
  2. Stir in the Rhubarb Curd.
  3. Add a teaspoon of rose-water.
  4. Add a few drops of pink food colouring if you feel the mixture needs to be pinker!  This won’t be necessary if you have already added colouring to home-made  Curd.
  5. Put the ice-cream mixture in your ice-cream maker, process until thickened and transfer to a freezer-proof container and store in your freezer until required.  Alternatively, as outlined above, you can put the ice-cream mixture straight into the freezer if you don’t have an ice-cream maker.
