This Weeks Bake: 4 Rhubarb & Custard Tarts


It's forced rhubarb season! While working in restaurants I've always been grateful for the colour that rhubarb brings to the menu in January. The best stuff comes from Yorkshire where it is grown in dark sheds at 13ºC and harvested by candlelight producing an incredible bright pink colour and delicious sharp, sweet flavour. Scientists have deemed rhubarb to be a superfood, full of cancer-fighting polyphenols as well as high quantities of vitamins and minerals.

In celebration of this amazing vegetable (yes - technically it is a vegetable), this week's bake consists of 4 forced Yorkshire rhubarb and vanilla custard tarts in a crisp pastry shell. I have sourced the rhubarb from E Oldroyd & Sons who are considered to be the oldest, largest and best producer of premium forced Yorkshire rhubarb (Janet Oldroyd Hulme is known as the ‘High Priestess of Rhubarb')
