Rhubarb Purée Recipe



This is a gorgeous Rhubarb Purée that can be used in a variety of recipes as well as over ice cream, cake, as a coulis, to make panna cotta, or just eat with a spoon! I am adding it here as the flavour component of my homemade custard ice cream.

Recipe Notes

If you do not have ruby red rhubarb, you can try to use food colouring. I would just leave it natural as food colouring may distort the colour of the mixture in an unappetizing way, but it is an option.
