We make lunches daily, so snacks run out fast around here. Fruit leather is wonderful, but hard to keep in stock as the seasonal fruits keep changing. Rhubarb makes a great stop-gap, especially because it’s free for the picking from the backyard.
Make a bright pink rhubarb refrigerator jam and then spread it over a shortbread crust and top it with a gingery streusel for an early summer dessert that will impress. Recipe makes enough for a tray of bars and one jar of jam to save for later.
A stunningly coloured, lightly sweet, smooth, silky, tart, fruity, floral sauce. Great for drizzling on cheesecake, mousse, cakes and meringue (any dessert that would benefit from a little tart balance) or blending into boozy cocktails.
