 ½ cup water

These are rough quantities, you can vary according to your taste and how mature your rhubarb has grown. Add a touch more sugar at the end if still too tart.

Wash, top and tail the rhubarb. Cut into 2 cm slices.
Put the sliced rhubarb in a large pan. Sprinkle over the sugar and then add the water.
Place over a medium heat, giving a stir every so often.
Cook for 8-10 minutes if you want your rhubarb soft but retaining its shape.
For a mushy consistency, cook for longer.
If you want a smooth finish, use a hand held blender to puree the cooked mixture.

Here are a few ideas that you can use rhubarb for:

layer the stewed rhubarb with natural yoghurt in a sundae glass or ramekin for a tasty dessert
use it with yoghurt or creme fraiche to fill a crepe
mix it into home made ice cream (see my easy ice cream recipe)
use it in a crumble
... or try my rhubarb gin recipe for a little variety!

Make sure that reheated food is thoroughly cooked all the way through. If you’re cooking or reheating meat, cut it open with a clean knife to check it is piping hot all the way through – it should be steaming. www.foodsafe.eu
