“ Since my rhubarb started first showing it's first tip pushing through the soil I have been wishing it would hurry up and grow so I can make a crumble. I must say the weather hasn't exactly helped it grow much this year as the baby bunnies in my garden, this has now been covered up to help it get going.
As a child I didn't like rhubarb as I found it too tart but our next door neighbour gave us a great tip for getting rid of that problem. Here is what I do
1. Wash the rhubarb and cut it up into small pieces and place in a large bowl.
2. Boil a full kettle of water and pour over the rhubarb until they are covered and leave for 30mins.( This is the process that removes the tartness)
3. Strain away the water, cook the rhubarb and make your crumble topping
