Rhubarb apple cobbler...











When I was at my sister's a few weeks ago, we used some of her fresh rhubarb to add to apple cobbler.
We were not sure if it would be a bit woody as it was getting late in the season there and the stalks were huge. So...we cut up the stalks.. cooked it in a saucepan with a few tablespoons of water... and when it was soft..added some sugar...et voila... tasting time. It tasted soooo good. I ladled several huge spoonfuls onto the apples for the recipe..mixed it well and put on the topping. Wow !! It was the best apple cobbler I ever made. Bar none. We love it.

Rhubarb recipes are still making the rounds on some of the blogs.. .. even though most of us don't have access to any fresh rhubarb at this late date. However...I decided to give frozen a try...and you know what? Surprisingly good! did the same thing with my frozen chunks... stewed them... added it to some cobbler the other day and here it is. There was just some little thing different about this one.... not quite the same as the last one that was El Supremo...but still very good if I do say so myself...and I do. Something to do with the spices I think... perhaps I put a bit more ginger than I did previously... I do like to add some spices to my cobblers.












The colour is so pretty too...












A little dollop of vanilla frozen yogurt....mmmmm.....

Now you're talking! If this rhubarb cobbler tastes as good as it looks, then we are on to a winner. I would have a huge dollop of extra thick cream on mine! x

Oooh this sounds & LOOKS so good! I love rhubarb! Yummo! I'd probably replace the frozen yoghurt with full cream fatty ice-cream though :D

Okay,

This does not sound like a cholesterol reduced site. This sounds like the good old fashioned recipes we know and love...but only a tidbit, you understand.
