I was so happy to finally get my hands on the rhubarb growing in our back garden; our first vegetable harvest of 2015!
I know there are crumbles and pies and all sorts to be made with rhubarb, but I have to admit, I prefer it simple; spooned into porridge at breakfast or served with a dollop of plain yoghurt as dessert. I usually just stew it for these purposes, but I tossed this batch of rhubarb in sugar and roasted it and it really held its shape rather than just dissolving into a mass of fibres.
We have a couple of rhubarb plants growing up at the allotment in addition to the few we’ve got growing in the back garden so there will hopefully be a few more trugfuls to come.
Am looking forward to some rhubarb experimentation in the kitchen over the coming weeks! 🙂
