We grow our own rhubarb. Last year I kept leaving it thinking it would grown more and it ended up rotting. This year to encourage more growth I have decided to cut of stems when they have reached a reasonable size.
I asked Mr M what he would like me to do with the rhubarb and he said he really wanted a crumble. As there wasn't that much rhubarb I decided to make 2 small individual crumbles for us.
Below is the recipe I use for a normal size crumble for these small ones I halved the amount of everything
Preheat the oven to 180degrees
Measure 8oz flour, 3oz butter and 4 teaspoons of sweetner/5oz sugar (Mr M is type 1 diabetic so I try not to use sugar)
Mix these in a bowl. Rub the mixture between your fingers to get the best crumbly effect
Cut the rhubarb into small cubes and put in a pan.
Use a dessert spoon to put about 5 spoonfuls of water into the pan. You aren't boiling the rhubarb but adding enough water to help it soften. I keep some in a cup beside me as I cook incase I need to add more
Put the rhubarb mix in your bowl/ramekins
Put your crumble mix on top of the rhubarb
Place in the oven for 30 minutes
Put in a bowl with cream/ice cream/custard
