Ingredients

Fruit

3 cups fresh rhubarb, cut into 1/2 inch pieces
1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup water
1 pint fresh strawberries, hulled

Cream

1 cup whipping cream
2 tablespoons sugar
Strawberry halves, if desired

Directions

Place rhubarb, 1/2 cup sugar and water in medium saucepan. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until rhubarb is very soft (20 to 25 minutes).

Place rhubarb mixture and strawberries into 5-cup blender container or food processor bowl fitted with metal blade. Cover; pulse until blended but not entirely pureed (3 to 5 seconds). Pour mixture into medium bowl. Cover; refrigerate until chilled (about 2 hours).

Before serving, beat whipping cream in chilled small bowl at high speed, scraping bowl often, until soft peaks form. Continue beating, gradually adding sugar, until stiff peaks form.

Divide strawberry-rhubarb mixture into 6 dessert dishes. Just before serving, dollop each serving with about 1/3 cup cream mixture; swirl gently with knife for marbled effect. Garnish with strawberry halves, if desired.
