Feeling decidely indulgent on this cold damp day, I found myself inspired when given a gift of rhubarb this morning! (I get the strangest presents!)
Whilst I love rhubarb for some reason I have never actually cooked with it before but I was very pleased with the result!
For the Rhubarb: (makes 3-4 servings)
460g diced rhubarb
apx 12 tbsp caster sugar
2 tbsp sloe whiskey
In a large shallow pan, add all the ingredients and bring to a gentle simmer, cover and ignore for 10 minutes, return and mix well and remove the lid and allow the excess liquid to bubble away. That's it - all done!
For the rice pudding: (makes 1-2 servings depending on greed levels)
25g vanilla sugar
50g pudding rice
1 pint milk
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp cinnamon
Mix everything together and gently bake in a shallowish dish for approx 2 hours or until the liquid is nearly absorbed and its gorgeously brown!
To serve simply place a good dollop of each and bowl and tuck in! :-) perfect food on a grim day!
