A friend gave me this recipe a long time ago. It’s rich and creamy yet refreshing. I make this often in early summer when rhubarb is readily available. —Norma DesRoches, Warwick, Rhode Island

  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh or frozen rhubarb
  • 2 tablespoons plus 1-1/2 teaspoons sugar, divided
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons water
  • 1/2 cup sliced fresh strawberries
  • 1/3 cup heavy whipping cream, whipped
  • Additional sliced fresh strawberries, optional


  1. In a small saucepan, combine the rhubarb, 2 tablespoons sugar and the water. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, until tender, about 10 minutes. Transfer to a small bowl; cool to room temperature.
  2. Place strawberries and remaining 1-1/2 teaspoon sugar in a food processor; cover and process until pureed. Stir into rhubarb mixture. Fold in whipped cream. Spoon into 2 parfait glasses or dessert dishes. Cover and refrigerate until chilled. Garnish with additional berries if desired.
If using frozen rhubarb, measure rhubarb while still frozen, then thaw completely. Drain in a colander, but do not press liquid out.
