Great name, and beautifully simple to make. Rhubarb is my favourite version. Ginger biscuits add wonderful crunch. Soaking them in King’s Ginger liqueur makes it finer still. As summer goes on, use gooseberries or raspberries instead.


  • 1.5 kg/3 lb 5 oz rhubarb, cut into 4 cm/1½ inch lengths
  • 300 <


Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F/Gas 4. Put the rhubarb in a casserole and sprinkle with the sugar, orange juice and zest. Cover with a lid and roast for about 40 minutes
