This week Nikita’s choice was Rhubarb.. Seriously.. Rhubarb
Good news / bad news this week..
Good news.. Nikita is having her kitchen remodeled. Bad news.. She wasn’t able to cook this week. So no rhubarb recipe from her..
So this is where Nikita is at…
I can tell you right now, the challenge here was just finding rhubarb. I went to several stores and no luck. I finally found rhubarb in a small grocery store one county over. They had frozen rhubarb. I bought two bags of it! I decided to try a savory dish. I usually associate rhubarb with strawberries in a pie. I scaled the recipe down and replaced the wine with chicken broth. I love the fact that Nikita is all in on seasonal foods. I have a feeling we’ll be making so me thing involving peaches next month. I love the challenge within the challenge this go round! Until next time ladies
When Nikita sent over the secret ingredient. My first thought was.. Soo.. Rhubarb..Hmmm… I’ve never had rhubarb.. I had no idea how to prepare it..
Thank the good Lord for Pinterest..
The recipe I found was in German. First I had to translate then I I had to convert the measurements.
Sauerrrahm rhubarb ice
Ingredients for about 12 popsicles:
10.5 oz. sour cream or sour cream
7 oz. sour cream
3 oz. icing sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract (or alternatively, the scraped Mark half vanilla pod)
1 cup cream
½ cup rhubarb syrup (I just made my own using 4 stalks of rhubarb, sugar and water and adding a few strawberries to it)simmered over low heat for about a half hour
1 cup water
2 tablespoons chopped pistachios
The lemon squeeze. The sour cream with sour cream, powdered sugar, and lemon juice vanilla extract in a bowl. Boil the cream in a saucepan and add to the other ingredients. Everything vigorously with a whisk, whisk together. The prepared ice molds 3/4 fill with the cream mixture and let freeze for about 30 minutes in the freezer.
The rhubarb syrup with the water and pour vermixen (I have no idea, but it sounds cool)to separate frozen ice. The wooden sticks insert and allow to freeze at least 3 hours. I let the ice freeze overnight.
Thaw a bit before serving, then can be better solved from the mold the popsicles
I added the chopped pistachios to the bottom of the popsicle molds. (Oh shout out to Amy for the gift of the popsicle molds!!)
I was a little skeptical at first, but they turned out to be pretty freaking delicious. Even the old man commented how good they are..
Oh and I’m totally going to add vermixen to my vocabulary..
