At home Im definitely the cook, not to say Jim doesn’t, but its definitely more me. Since about last October we have been trying to live the Jamie Oliver dream and growing some of our own food. Or at least trying to. We planted potatoes, cabbage, carrots, tomatoes, lettuce, strawberries, garlic, onions, herbs,peas and rhubarb. The idea of growing your own is a lot sweeter than the reality. It’s hard work to get the soil good and make the time to tend your crops. But, my favourite the trusty Rhubarb (along with Rosemary and Mint) take care of the gard work for you and just grow. On their own. These are the kind of crops I like to work with.
So, the other day I made our first meal with ingredients from the allotment.Good Ol’ Rhubarb Crumble! I gave it a tasty little twist with a crushed almond and coconut topping. T.A.S.T.Y
