Rhubarb Crumble

We are just entering Rhubarb season – everyone shout hooray! Last year I bought my first rhubarb plant and it is working its magic in a little spot on my allotment! I can’t wait to eat some from it. I am a big fan of Rhubarb and it is the plant that keeps on giving, growing back year after year, with its bright pink stalks providing some sharp fruitiness.

We also have a little Rhubarb plant in our garden and it has spent a year reviving itself after we had to move it away from the Chickens! Look at the beautiful colour of these stalks!
