Okay so I’m the first to admit it, I’m not the biggest fan of Rhubarb. It’s sort of tangy and makes me make a funny face when I taste it. At least that’s what I used to think before under gardener decided that he would make some of Jamie’s recipes and chose the ‘Speedy Rhubarb Fool’. OMG! Can you say Sweetness itself?
So here I am picking some Rhubarb the minute it’s anywhere near ready (making sure to break it off and not cut it). And running indoors with it, begging UG to make the thing, the thing! you know from Jamie’s book.
An hour or so later (okay so we forgot to take the pastry out of the freezer) and ta-dah! It’s made, and we’re in the garden in the bizarre March sunshine enjoying the only Rhubarb recipe that I actually like.
Okay, here’s the recipe. Just promise me you’ll make it.
