Rhubarb has just come back into season so I have robbed some from my mums garden and will be giving lots of ideas on how to use rhubarb to its fullest! Theres a reason I have given a few different options for sweeteners and oils as its really down to your preference, I have tried using all and the overall difference is minimal its really whats available to you and whats already in the kitchen press! I had some stew left over and it was amazing as a porridge topping, so make sure you save a little!
