Do you remember I had a whole load of rhubarb given to me? Well Ma sent a recipe that was exactly the same as Allotment Lady's. Very simple, very nice. Rhubarb and sugar were put in a bowl on Saturday night (just before Eurovision. Well done Finland! You rock!) Everything else was done quite nicely on the Sunday. All went swimmingly, until I got slightly distracted towards the end of the cooking, came back to the kitchen only to find the rhubarb and sugar had burnt. Really, really burnt. It's nasty and ruined and if I get a hold of some more 'barb I shall be making more, I do after all have a huge pile of clean empty jars just waiting for filling. At least it wasn't my crop, eh? That would have been depressing.
