Rhubarb and Ginger Fool

Matthew:  Last week, I checked out the new Middleton farmer’s market that is held on Tuesdays just a few blocks from my apartment.  It’s still early for produce, but I did see a lot of rhubarb for sale.  I bought some and wanted to try a different sort of rhubarb dessert.   I made this recipe called Rhubarb and Ginger Fool from the NYTimes.  It was really easy to make and was rather good.  You make a rhubarb sauce with orange juice and ginger and then mix it with whipped cream and yogurt.  I brought some to work and I think my friends liked it too.  I did set aside one stalk for a vodka infusion.  You just leave the rhubarb in for 1/2 a day or so and it is done.  I haven’t tried mine yet, but I think it will need to be mixed with a sugar syrup to make it sweet enough.
