Deliciously stewed rhubarb

I absolutely love rhubarb – it brings back fond memories of my childhood and eating my mums delicious apple and rhubarb crumble! This recipe could not get easier and it is so versatile. I like to make a big batch at the beginning of the week so I have a healthy, nutritious refined sugar free topping to my yoghurt, porridge and even granola. Sweet yet tart – give this delicious recipe a go today!

Ingredients –

  • 3 rhubarb stems
  • A small thumb of ginger, grated
  • 1 pink lady apple, grated with skin on
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon zest

Method –

  1. Cut the rhubarb into 2 cm pieces and place in a saucepan, add the remaining ingredients, next bring to the mixture to the boil and place a lid on the saucepan.
  2. Once boiled, reduce the heat and allow to simmer for 5-10 minutes until the rhubarb has completely softened.
  3. Enjoy over some natural yoghurt, granola or try making a delicious crumble with it by adding some berries and apple chunks to the mixture!

 Note: When grating the zest of the lemon, only use the yellow top layer of the skin as the white part beneath can be quite bitter.
