Strawberry, Rhubarb and Rose Fool
Lippert was one of seven kids, so the only time she got to be alone with her mother was when they pruned the rose garden together. These days, Lippert grows wonderful organic roses in her own garden. Beautiful Desserts
The stewed rhubarb can be refrigerated overnight.
Rose syrup is available at specialty food stores. Lippert recommends the not-too-sweet Mymouné brand of rose syrup from Lebanon, which is available at kalustyans.com.
