Stewed apple and rhubarb
January 10th 2009 18:59
It is that time of year when the rhubarb pokes it's head through the ground and demands to be picked and stewed. My mother-in-law brought round two big bunches of the vegetable the other day so I decided to slow cook it with some apples to freeze for use in pies and crumbles later on.
This recipe is taken from "Slow Cooking" published by R&R Publications marketing. You will need a crockpot.
2 bunches rhubarb, trimmed, washed and chopped
4 Granny Smith apples, peeled and sliced
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 1/4 cups water
1. Combine rhubarb and apples in base of a slow cooker. Add the sugar, nutmeg and water and cook on high for 2 hours.
well not quite, then you can either serve the stewed fruit with a sprinkling of nutmeg and caster sugar as well as serving with cream, custard or ice cream. As mentioned, most of mine will be used as a filling at a later stage.
