Rhubarb Recipes

Graham's Rhubarb Pudding
Looking around for different ways to cook rhubarb as we have a lot of rhubarb in the garden,
Classic English Pancakes
Pancakes are traditionally served on Shrove Tuesday, which is always 47 days before Easter Sunday, and is the final day before the commencement of Lent. As Lent is, for Christians, a time of abstinence of some kind - of giving things up - pancakes are the perfect food for the day before, using as they do eggs, fat and flour - foods seen as luxurious and that were forbidden for strict Lent observers.

Not so many people observe Lent these days, although it can be such a useful practice - regardless of our religious or spiritual identity - for appreciating more keenly the luxuries of every day life which we may take for granted.

A period of renunciation can help is discover, perhaps, how attached we can get to and even how reliant we can be upon certain things and certain behaviours.

Meanwhile, though, back to those pancakes!
Spiced Rhubarb
Spiced rhubarb makes a great warming dessert. It's a lovely way of enjoying fresh rhubarb and works well with the delicate, early-season forced rhubarb, as well as the stronger-flavoured later season variety.
Rhubarb Chutney by Matt Tebbutt
This non-dessert rhubarb recipe makes a great addition to our selection, and has been provided to us very generously by TV Chef Matt Tebbutt.
Easy Rhubarb Cheesecake
This cheesecake is SO easy to make, and is a brilliant one for making the day before your dinner so that all you have to do is put the sauce on top on the day.
Rhubarb Fool
This rhubarb fool is really simple to make. Yet it makes an impressive (if somewhat calorie-rich!) dessert. It's a lovely fruity dessert to herald the start of spring.
