Rhubarb Ice Cream

You don't need an ice cream freezer to make this rich refreshing treat. Years ago, we had a big rhubarb patch. A neighbor who knew I loved ice cream shared this recipe with me. —Jan Douglas, Dent, Minnesota

    This was absolutely delicious! I only had half the cream I needed to make it, and it didn't turn out as smooth as would be expected as a result, but it was just perfect. No one else was a fan, but I plan on keeping this recipe and making a big batch to be frozen for myself!

    This is delicious. This really does taste like fresh Rhubarb Pie. I like that you don't need an ice cream freezer, but it turns out just as good.
