Did you see earlier in the week that we made Rhubarb Crumble – that’s because it’s rhubarb season in our garden, I love how easy it is to grow and that it’s also a cut and come again plant, we end up with the rhubarb all the way through from now until Autumn and as long as we cut it regularly it keeps growing and tastes delicious. With so much of the stuff – when we moved in we had a rhubarb bed that was 2m x 10m long – I’m always on the look out for different ways to use it and here’s just 10 simply delicious rhubarb recipes.
