Rhubarb, ginger and rose crumble

Serves 6

500 gr rhubarb
10 gr unsalted butter for greasing
45 gr ginger stem, finely chopped
3 tablespoons syrup for the ginger stem jar
5 tablespoons light brown sugar
2 teaspoons rose water
200 gr plain flour
pinch salt
½ teaspoon ground ginger
130 gr unsalted cold butter
70 gr caster sugar
Labneh, greek yoghurt, custard or ice cream to serve, if desired
Rose petals for garnish, if desired


• Preheat oven to 200 C / 400 F. Grease an oven proof dish with the butter and set aside (I used a 20 cm/8 inch round tin).

• Trim the ends of the rhubarb and roughly slice it into 3 cm pieces. Transfer the rhubarb in a large mixing bowl and add in the ginger stem, syrup, light brown sugar and rose water. Mix well to combine all the ingredients and set aside.

• In a separate mixing bowl add in the flour, ground ginger and salt. Take the butter from the fridge and cut it into 1 cm cubes. Using your finger tips, rub the flour into the butter until the mixture looks like coarse breadcrumbs and you can’t feel the butter anymore. Make sure you use your fingertips and not your hand palms as this will warm up the butter and you need to keep it cold in order to obtain the right crumbly texture. Add in the sugar and use a large spoon (or your fingers tips) to mix to combine.

• Transfer the rhubarb mixture in the greased dish and sprinkle the crumble mixture over the rhubarb making sure that all the rhubarb is now covered. Don’t be tempted to press the crumble mixture onto the rhubarb because this will make the crumble more cake-y and less crumbly.

• Place in the oven for 40 to 45 minutes or until the rhubarb is soft and the crumble is golden. Serve warm with labneh, Greek yoghurt, custard or ice cream, if desired. Garnish with rose petals, if desired.
