I think you need to cook it first and add lots of sugar

i was also on the understanding that you had to cook it first, i think people mainly stew it and yes lots of sugar i believe is a must

I cook it first, and add apple to sweeten it.

No, put it in raw, just like you would for apple crumble. It goes squidgy v. quickly anyway, if you pre-cook it you'll end up wth sludge.

Do add plenty of sugar, though.

Thanks all

Glad you reminded me to add sugar, would have forgotten to

So you can choose from:
Precooking the rhubarb
NOT precooking the rhubard
precooking half of it, the other half raw.

Which basically means do whatever you likesmile

I made rhubard and apple crumble yesterday and have just eaten some more today, it was lovely.

I chop it up, sprinkle with sugar and a couple of tablespoons of water, then put in in the oven to 'start off' while I'm making the crumble mixture (about 10mins).

It always comes out perfect - thankyou Marguerite Patten!

I put mine in raw with plenty of brown sugar.
