Ingredients
  • 1200 g (2½ lb) rhubarb, trimmed and cut into ¼” slices
  • 250 g (8 oz) sugar
  • 2 tbsp ginger, freshly grated
  • Grated zest of 1 orange and 1 lemon
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 250 g (8 oz) pastry
Instructions
  1. Combine 800 g (1½ lb) of the rhubarb in a pan with the sugar and the grated zest. Apply a low heat and gently bring to the boil.
  2. Once the mixture starts to boil, continue to simmer for 40-45 minutes with frequent stirring.
  3. Remove the pan from the heat and allow to cool.
  4. Once the mixture has cooled, stir in the cinnamon, ginger and remaining rhubarb.
  5. Line a well-greased 8″ (20 cm) pie dish with pastry, allowing an inch of pastry to hang over the edge of the dish. Fold the extra pastry back into the dish to make a double-thickness edge to the pie
  6. Pour in the rhubarb mixture. Bake in an oven at 200 °C for 35 minutes.
  7. Allow to cool completely before serving.
Titli's Tips
You can prepare the puree (up to Step 3) a couple of days in advance. It keeps well in the ‘fridge, or you can freeze it. The puree is nice on its own with ice-cream.
