rhubarb and ginger crumble
i added ginger (powdered which worked just fine but perhaps grated fresh is best) to the stewed rhubarb. i also added oats and cinnamon to the basic crumble mixture.
although i can't stand gordon ramsey, i did take his advice in caramelising the rhubarb by following these instructions but the sugar started to burn so i added water to turn it into stewed rhubarb after all. but it still retained a certain stickiness which was lovely. i also added some orange zest.
i made one for the freezer and a small one to eat fresh from the oven.
it made a really spicy pudding - perfect for the end of summer.
