Summer Rhubarb

This is how Garrett and I like to eat our summer ice cream. 
Warm rhubarb sauce over vanilla ice cream.

This is how Bodhi likes to eat his :-) 

The contrasting flavors of the tangy n' tart rhubarb paired with the sweet n' creamy ice cream are a perfect summer dessert match. If you'd like to taste for yourself, it's simple.

What you need:
4 stalks rhubarb; washed and chopped into 1" thick chunks
2 teaspoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons water

What you do:
On stovetop in small saucepan, over medium-heat' combine all ingredients, stir often, and cook until the rhubarb is completely broken down and has become a nice sauce. Serve warm over vanilla ice cream.

If you tire of eating the rhubarb over vanilla ice cream, bake the rest into muffins & throw in some sliced strawberries. Yum.
