Tis rhubarb season…. and for some reason this year the rhubarb here in Redwood has been very slow to come on.  I reckon it is just tired of where it is, and we will need to move it to new ground later in the year.

We both love rhubarb, and we’ve a lot of plants, so I’m always trying to think of new things to do with rhubarb.


While pottering about the other day, I had some new inspiration!

I had made a Ginger Custard last year, em!  Ginger Custard + Rhubarb = a match made in heaven, eh?

So it developed from there…. I made some of my now almost infamous pastry.

Poached some really sweet fresh rhubarb – wash, chop into chunks about 1 inch long, poach in a little water and some sugar.

Made my custard….. this is still tedious and lots of pots involved but worth the effort.

Line your tart tins with pastry (I didn’t even blind bake).  Place some of the lovely rhubarb pieces in each pastry case, pour over the custard and sprinkle with a little brown sugar.

Bake at 180 deg C for about 30 minutes.

And the result…. delicious mini tarts.
