Grated zest and juice of 1 Orange

110g/4oz castor sugar

6 stems or more  of young pink rhubarb (about 500g/1lb2oz)

2 cardaom pods and 2 star anise


284ml carton double cream

zest and juice of 1 lemon

3-4 tbsp. elderflower cordial (or white wine or brandy)

100g/4oz castor sugar



Warm orange juice in a pan and sugar, and allow to dissolve.

Cut rhubarb into even thumb length segments and cook in juice with zest, cardamom and star anise for 8-10 mins until soft but holding shape. Cool.

Drain rhubarb pieces keeping liquid, and reduce the liquid until really thick and syrupy.


Beat the cream with lemon zest and juice, liquer and sugar until light  and thick.

Remove cardamom and star anise from the syrup.

Put rhubarb into individual glasses (this dessert looks perfect served in stem-ware glass), then spoon some syrup then syllabub on top (see photo above).,

Chill for a few hours before serving.

Serves 6 - 8.



This amazing rhubarb recipe was kindly passed on to me by Jane from Beechgrove Luxury Bed and Breakfast in historic Launceston. 

I am always amazed at the photos of the recipes posted on Beechgrove's Website and Facebook page, and I asked Jane if she would share a recipe with Rhubarb-Central.com from time to time. 

Visit their website - you'll fall in love with this truly fabulous Bed and Breakfast! Thanks Jane!
