Rhubarb is at its best in summer, especially in this sweet dessert.

Stewed Rhubarb Recipe


1 bunch rhubarb (The Fresh Pear Fruit Supply, Stall 20, B Shed)
1 cup caster sugar (Nut Trek, Shop 55-56, Dairy Hall)
½ cup water
custard or baked ricotta, to serve (The Epicurean, Shop 14-16, Dairy Hall)


Wash the rhubarb and trim into 3cm lengths on the diagonal.

Place in a saucepan with the caster sugar and water.

Gently simmer over low heat for 10 minutes until the rhubarb is tender, but still holds its shape.
