It’s rhubarb time here in Québec
I thought I’d share a recipe that is a big hit in this house.
My son just loves it 😉
My mom-im-law made this a couple of years ago, and it has become a classic.
If you want to try it you’ll need for one batch:
- 4 cups (one liter) of chop rhubarb (fresh or frozen, doesn’t matter)
- 1/2 orange rind, grated
- 1 cup of sugar (I use fructose and put a bit less)
- 3 tablespoons of water
I like to do a couple of batches at once. This time I did 3 batches so I used, 12 cups rhubarb; 2 orange rind; 2 1/2 cup of fructose and about 1/3 cup of water.
Chop your rhubarb and grate your oranges.
Add the sugar and water, mix and bring to a boil. Let simmer until it has the texture you want (we like it with bits of rhubarb still left!)
Pour in jar, put the lids on and let cool.
When cool enough store in fridge for a couple of weeks or keep it in the freezer for a winter sweetness!
