VeeBee has a spectacular aura about VeeBee has a spectacular aura about
Rhubarb Crumble the VeeBee way

I have to confess to having just taken two threads off topic because I mentioned the words Rhubarb and Crumble. Sorry...

So I thought - why not see what you all think:

Quantities are all to suit your own dish, and whether you are really strong willed, just a moderate pig or a really greedy one.... but the general rule for the crumble is: same sugar as flour and half fat to flour (Plain or SR does not matter),
i.e., 100gm flour...50gm butter or marge...100 gram sugar
(If you make too much just freeze the excess)

Wash and peel the rhubarb, cut into pieces about 4 or 5 cms.
Spread the rhubarb on a baking tray, sprinkle with sugar, and put it in a medium heat oven until soft. Give it a bit of a gentle stir every 5 minutes.It is easier to stop it going too mushy that way. The sugar might also caramelise a little bit which adds taste.

Rub the fat into the flour with your fingertips so that it resembles breadcrumbs - fine or a bit coarser is entirely to taste, but preferably not big lumps!
Stir in the sugar - You can use white, golden or brown sugar depending on what you like.

If you want a bit of an additional flavour add a handful of either flaked almonds / crushed hazelnuts / desiccated coconut etc

Spread the crumble mix onto a baking tray and place into a medium oven, and every five minutes or so keep breaking it up with a fork as it bakes, (otherwise it can go a bit like a cake). This makes a really crumbly crumble and stops it going soggy in the middle.

When the crumble mix has dried a bit and gone more 'crumby', (about 15/20 mins) crumble it up as fine or coarse as you want and spread on top of the fruit,

Bake again until it is as brown as you want.

Eat

Wait one hour, then go for a very long walk to work of the calories.

Gorgeous either hot with custard, cold with ice cream or any other way you wish.


Also try adding a few dried apricots to the rhubarb after it has cooked, (dried will soak up the rhubarb juice), and obviously you can use any other fruit instead of the rhubarb - gooseberries / apple & orange / plumb & apricot are all good.

I hope you enjoy it.

Re: Rhubarb Crumble the VeeBee way

I honestly don't know, I have not seen it in the Bodrum area. But it likes shade and a clayish soil and can be grown from seed, although it takes a couple of seasons to get a good plant.
I am going to bring out some seed and a baby plant and try growing it at the farm.

Re: Rhubarb Crumble the VeeBee way

Is it possible to grow it already made into a crumble with custard on it?

Re: Rhubarb Crumble the VeeBee way

Oh Dear!!
This is quite cruel for the likes of Saoirse who's obviously drooling now at the thoughts of a rhubarb crumble.

In years gone by, I've brought rhubarb roots over here but they just don't take.
I used to live in Chapel-en-le-Frith, not overly far from our poster in Chesterfield and Rhubarb was grown along with gooseberries in many a garden without any problems at all.

Saoirse. Make a peach crumble, or an apricot with ginger, or even a plum one. They're all gorgeous and most of the resorts have a shop with British products where you'll probably find Birds' Custard powder to make your custard with.
All is not lost. The rhubarb will still be there when you get back to Britain, even if some kind person has to freeze it for you??

With me not making any trips back to Britain any more, I wonder if someone could be coersed into bringing some out? Now, there's a thought.

Re: Rhubarb Crumble the VeeBee way

We sometimes have real rhubarb crumble with custard in the Canteen at work , got to say the girls really excel there. Sixty eight pence a go.

Spoilt or what.
