May in Minnesota can often not bring in Spring quick enough, but there are always the beginnings of great things to come, such as rhubarb. I have a rhubarb plant that was given to me from my father-in-law, which was split from a plant on his fathers farm.
Heirloom rhubarb? One thing I do know is that it makes a great rhubarb crisp. When the rhubarb is young and tender, this ice cream is a Spring craving.
After this crisp comes out of the oven, we allow it to cool. We cut a few pieces and freeze before chopping and adding to our frozen ice cream base.
The tartness of the rhubarb and the crunch of the tart made for a nice little seasonal combination.
