Love it or hate it - rhubarb

I suppose when there are so many foods that are much more valuable one may wonder why it is worth it to grow rhubarb...we have it growing in a few places but it has grown best in a pot in full sun.

Last night I made rhubarb crumble for pudding...this is how:

Cut and wash your rhubard..

Chop it and put in a pot with a tablespoon sugar and tablespoon water, cook unti just tender.

Place on crumble crust. I make a low GI crust with 90g butter, 1/2cup sugar and 1 cup ww flour, 1 cup oat bran. Cover the bottom of your greased dish with half the crust, place rhubarb ontop and then cover with the other half. Bake for 1/2 on 180 deg C.

Serve with homemade custard.
