Only on Facebook would we have a conversation about rhubarb! After the last post on rhubarb recipes was shared on Facebook a lovely momstown Hamilton member named Winnie told us about her Grandma's traditional Danish dessert and then translated the recipe to share with us! Thank-you Winnie!
I had to do a bit of a translation as all the recipes I could find were in danish, but here it is: traditional rhubarb "paste" dessert.
700 grams of rhubarb (approx)
4 cups of water
1 tbs of vanilla
175 grams of sugar (more or less depends on how sweet you want it)
4 tbs of corn starch
Rinse and cut rhubarb into small pieces. Boil them in 4 cups of water for 10-15 min (until very mushy).
Strain the rhubarb and save the juice.
Boil the juice and add vanilla and sugar.
Add cornstarch (premixed in cold water) and boil until somewhat thick (will thicken more when completely cold).
Refrigerate until cold. Serve with milk or cream or just eat plain.
