A new illustrated recipe for you. I think I’m starting to get to grips with these now. It’s a fine balance between communicating the information in a clear, concise way, but also making them visually interesting. I hope this is clear and not too concise, feel free to print it out and use it.
So … rhubarb. One of the few crops that keep you going through the hungry gap in May. Once you get it established in a place it likes, there’s really not much to do but watch it grow. Although do remove any flowers if they appear, as they weaken the plant.
It’s apparently nice with pork and mackerel, but I’m afraid I’ve not tried eating it in a savoury way. It has to be sweet for me. I’ve so far had it in a crumble (obviously), a crumble cake, I have some rhubarb gin on the brew and this is my second batch of muffins (though to be fair the first batch were for a cake sale). So I thought it was about time I shared a recipe.
The print is also available to buy from my Etsy shop. As with all my prints, it’s printed with long-lasting inks onto archive quality photo paper, which means it won’t fade and will look good on your kitchen wall for years.
I might consider putting this one onto a tea-towel (if I can enlarge it enough without losing the quality) and once I have a selection of these recipes I’ll be printing them on card, probably A5 sized, as a boxed recipe card set.
Hope you like it.
PS: I’ll update you all on my allotment activities very soon.
