Rhabarberkompott / stewed rhubarb

Unseren Rhabarberpflanzen gefaellt das Wetter, das zur Zeit vorherrscht, sehr gut. Entsprechend rasch wachsen sie, und wir koennen regelmaessig Rhabarber ernten. Gestern waren es ueber 1.5kg. Eigentlich wollte ich den Rhabarber entsaften und Rhabarbergelee ausprobieren, aber wie jedes Mal wurde der Rhabarber dann doch zu Kompott verarbeitet (weil das mein Mann so gerne isst).

Our rhubarb plants really like the current weather. As a result, they grow really fast and we can harvest rhubarb on a regular basis. Yesterday, our harvest was more than 1.5kgs. I had originally planned to make juice from the rhubarb, and try out a recipe for rhubarb jelly, but, as usual, I ended up making stewed rhubarb instead (because my husband loves it).

Den Rharbarber dazu schaelen / Faeden entfernen und in Stuecke schneiden. Das ganze in einen grossen Topf geben und zum Saft ziehen mit Zucker ueberstreuen. Das ganze laesst man dann ein paar Stunden stehen.

Peel the rhubarb / remove the strings and cut it into pieces. Place the pieces into a large pot and sprinkle them with sugar so it will draw juice. Leave everything to stand for a few hours.

Dann einen Teil des Saftes in eine Tasse abgiessen, und den Rhabarber simmern lassen, bis er weich, aber noch stueckig ist. Den abgegossenen Saft mit einem Paeckchen Vanillepuddingpulver verruehren, und zum Rhabarber geben. Kurz aufkochen lassen, damit der Rhabarber andickt, und mit Erdbeermarmelade abschmecken.

Drain part of the juice into a cup, and leave to rhubarb to simmer until it is soft (but you can still see some rhubarb pieces). Dissolve a packet of custard powder in the reserved juice, and stir into the rhubarb. Bring to the boil to thicken and sweaten to taste with strawberry jam.

Das Rhabarberkompott kalt oder warm mit Vanillesosse, suesser Milch (gezuckerte Milch), gesuesstem Joghurt oder Sahne servieren.

Serve the stewed rhubarb, warm or cold, with custard, sweetend milk, sweetend yogurt or cream.

    You learn something new every day! I don’t think I’ve ever seen rhubarb in France – though why not considering the word is probaby French anyway!

      Rhubarb grows in (northern) France – and it is offered at the market as well.
      And yes, the french word for rhubarb is rhubarbe.
