If you have any space in your garden, rhubarb is a super-easy plant to grow, and can be used in so many ways in the kitchen, from pies and compotes, to jams and this lovely dessert. Rhubarb can be quite tart, so feel free to adjust the honey or maple syrup quantities – you can add a little more at the end of cooking, if needed.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
1 bunch rhubarb, leaves removed
1-2 tablespoons honey, (see note)
or 1-2 tablespoons maple syrup
250g strawberries

Whole-egg custard (to serve)

Quantity Ingredient
3 eggs
1 1/2 tablespoons maple syrup
1 tablespoon cornflour
500ml milk
1/2 teaspoon natural vanilla extract

Method

  1. To make the custard, place the eggs, maple syrup and cornflour in a mixing bowl. Use a hand-held whisk to combine. Heat the milk and vanilla in a small saucepan until it is just starting to simmer. Slowly pour into the bowl with the egg mixture, whisking continuously until combined. Return to the saucepan and cook, stirring, over low heat for about 5 minutes, or until the mixture thickens and coats the back of a spoon. Remove from the heat. Strain to remove any lumps.
  2. Preheat the oven to 180ºC. Line a baking dish with baking paper.
  3. Cut the rhubarb stalks into 10 cm lengths. Place in the prepared baking dish. Drizzle over the honey or maple syrup. Roast in the oven for 15 minutes, or until just tender. Add the strawberries to the dish and cook for a further 3–5 minutes, or until tender.
  4. Serve the warm roasted rhubarb and strawberries with the custard, or use plain yoghurt.

Baby’s serve

  • Because this dish has a little added sugar, you should ideally wait until your baby is over 12 months before offering it to her. If you do give your baby a small taste (using the maple syrup, not the honey), you can purée until smooth or you can offer it as finger food.

Toddler’s serve

  • Serve as is, cut up as needed.

Note

  • Honey is not suitable for babies under 12 months.
