I love rhubarb, especially ‘forced rhubarb’  – out-of-season rhubarb grown indoors, a speciality of “the rhubarb triangle” south of Leeds in West Yorkshire.

This recipe is not for the amateur cook. It is a toughie, with various components, but wow – what a finish! It really shows rhubarb off at its best!

Why not come along to the Rhubarb Festival in Wakefield on 24 and 26 Febraury 2011? If you are really interested in rhubarb, you can pre book a trip through the ‘forced rhubarb’ sheds and learn all about the history of rhubarb first hand from Janet and Neil at Oldroyds Farm.
