Ingredients
  • 400g Grower's Selection Rhubarb
  • 50ml water
  • 2 large eggs
  • 150g caster sugar
  • 2tsp cornflour
  • 25g unsalted butter
Method
  • Chop the rhubarb and add to a large pan with the water. Bring to a simmer, then cover and cook for 10 minutes, or until the fruit is softened and broken down.

  • Allow to cool a little then strain into a heatproof jug through a fine sieve. Press all of the juice out with the back of a wooden spoon. Discard the fibres. Rinse any residue out of the pan.

  • In a bowl, whisk together the eggs, sugar and cornflour. Slowly add the rhubarb juice a little at a time, stirring continuously.

  • Transfer the mixture back to the pan and add the butter, cut into pieces. Cook over a low heat for 12-18 minutes, stirring regularly, until it is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon.

  • Allow the rhubarb curd to cool then spoon into a sterilised jar. This will keep in the fridge for up to a week.
