Summer Fruits Jam

It’s that time of year where gardens, allotments and fruit farms are heaving with all manner of gorgeous summer fruits. With this in mind I have developed Summer Fruits Jam. Everyone in my family loved this jam as the combination of strawberries, cherries, blueberries and rhubarb complimented each other beautifully. In fact I had wanted …

Rhubarb & Blueberry Tarte Tatin

So yesterday I found myself with some rhubarb I’d bought reduced and had a great idea to make sorbet, until I realised that my ice cream maker base wasn’t in the freezer so that idea went out the window. Then I thought about making a rhubarb cake but I have a couple of really good …

Rhubarb & Strawberry Jam

My daughter has nicknamed me ‘The Crazy Jam Lady’ and I have to say that suits me fine as I absolutely adore making jam. In the last 3 years I have gone from complete novice to having won 2 1st prizes for my jams at the local village show. So in that time and with …

Rhubarb & Blackberry Spiral Cobbler

Sometimes I see a recipe and I just want to tweak it to my own taste. This happened recently when I saw a Rhubarb Spiral Cobbler (with ginger) in my copy of The Ultimate Healthy Eating Cookbook (Index 1999). With some bargain rhubarb and a booty of frozen blackberries in the freezer (foraged of course) …

Rhubarb and Marzipan Cake

I was chatting to my mum recently when she told me about some Rhubarb and Marzipan Muffins her sister had been baking. Well there was a flavour combination I hadn’t thought about and having plenty of marzipan and rhubarb the other day I decided to make a cake based on these 2 ingredients. I based …

Rhubarb, Lemon and Vanilla Jam

Preserve, jam jars

I am really getting into jam making this year and have discovered that you don’t need preserving sugar as long as you use lemon juice for fruits not high in pectin. The addition of the lemon rind to the pan is also helpful and adds a bit more lemon flavour. I also learned since my …

Rhubarb & Ginger Cake

Sometimes you have an idea for a cake and you know where you want to end up and you think you know how you’re going to get there. This cake turned out wonderfully but was the result of misreading a couple of my old recipes by using double the amount of sugar and over chopping …

Rhubarb and Strawberry Grunt

Britain is awash with strawberries and rhubarb and there’s no better past time than picking your own strawberries at this time of year. Well in theory at least, if we could find a dry day when we weren’t either being buffeted by wind or being flooded! I thought that these two fruits would be ideal …

Rhubarb Pudding

I was looking for a recipe to use up the rhubarb I had and stumbled upon this recipe from my very old (1981) and falling apart St Michael 1,000 Recipe Cook Book.  With the weather showing no sign of cheering up I have been cooking a lot of comfort food recently.  This pudding was yummy …
