Anyone with rhubarb in their allotment will know how much produce you can end up with. When you are bored with making crumble, and have a fridge full of fermented rhubarbs, this is a great way of using the beautiful-looking vegetable. Yes, rhubarb is actually a vegetable even though we mostly make sweet things out of it.


  • 700 g/ lb rhubarb
  • 1 litre/


  1. Rinse the rhubarb and cut up in small pieces, then put in a saucepan with the measured water.
  2. Boil the rhubarb for 5 minutes or so until the pieces have started to disintegrate. Let cool to room temperature.
  3. Over a large bowl to retain the liquid, strain the rhubarb through a muslin cloth or a nut milk bag. You can press down the purée if needed.
