Rhubarb, the prettily pink and satisfyingly sharp stem that we can't help but adore. It's the main ingredient in all of the most comforting desserts, from crumbles to cakes and it even works in savoury dishes. If you're feeling the love for rhubarb we have loads of suggestions for how to eat it.
If you haven't tried it in a cake yet, a rhubarb almond cake is a great place to start. A cross between rice pudding and cake, rhubarb and orange rice cake is one of the most comforting thing to ever come out of your oven. As if that's not enough, both cakes are naturally gluten free.
Rhubarb is in season for most of the year, but just in case you have a craving and your greengrocer is shut it's a good idea to preserve some. Jam is a good choice, ours is paired with strawberries for a taste of summer (remember summer?) all year. If jam sounds too daunting, try a rhubarb syrup to use in cocktails or to pour over ice-cream and cakes.
