Roasted Strawberries and Rhubarb with Cardamom Whipped Cream

Khalilah Ramdene with a salivating new take on a classic flavor pairing.
By Khalilah Ramdene

Once May begins to creep into June, my thoughts become clouded with dreams of strawberries and rhubarb. This early summer duo has been featured in pies, cobblers, crisps and tarts, and even jams and jellies, all in the pursuit of the sweet-tart flavor this combination is known for. Strawberries, as the earliest of the summer berries, seemed destined to pair well with late-spring rhubarb and this marriage of fruit and vegetable (rhubarb is a vegetable after all) continues to enchant us with every bit we take.

For something a little different I toss my strawberries and rhubarb with honey and crystallized ginger before roasting. You get layers of warm notes in between the sweet strawberries and tart rhubarb. Try it spooned over your favorite recipe for French toast or pancakes. Please note that topping it with a generous dollop of cardamom whipped cream is absolutely required.
