Hey guys and gals, first post here, so.....hi!!!

Tried this out over the weekend, a relatively "good for you" crumble.


2 lb (1 kg) rhubarb
8 heaped tbsp plain flour
4 oz (100 g) butter
Sugar: Demerara, soft brown, or white
1 rounded tsp ginger
Golden syrup


1. Top and tail the rhubarb, wash and cut into inch-long (2 cm) pieces.
2. Put the rhubarb in a saucepan with the ginger, a couple of tablespoons of sugar, a very little cold water and a modest dollop of golden syrup.
3. Simmer gently over a very low heat until the rhubarb is soft and the liquid syrupy (around 20 minutes), then transfer to a deep-sided ovenproof dish.
4. Make the crumble topping by sifting the flour into a large bowl, then adding the butter in small pieces and rubbing in until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.
5. Stir another couple of tablespoons of sugar into the crumble mixture; loosely cover the fruit with the crumble without pressing it down too hard, and bake in the oven, Gas Mark 5 (190C) for about 20 minutes, until the topping is slightly golden.

This is from - came across it at the moneysupermarket website. There are some other recipes, although haven't got round to trying them out yet.
