This month our Eat the World group is visiting Sweden. This fun group, where we virtually travel around the World, enjoying traditional foods is hosted by Evelyne of CulturEatz.
Thus far we have visited Kenya, Thailand, Ireland, and Cuba. This is the first dessert I have made as we travel and it is a keeper. Especially, if like me, you have an overabundance of rhubarb growing in your garden. Well, in my case it is not my garden but my friends, John and Kirsten's garden.
You want to cut the rhubarb into small slices so that it cooks completely during the baking process.
Toss it with a good amount of sugar, a little cornstarch to thicken it up and some ginger. I used ginger paste that you find in the produce section of your grocer. It makes life much easier if you use a lot of ginger.
A food processor makes quick work of the crumble with which to top the rhubarb. I am lucky enough to have an oven on my outdoor grill so I baked this outside on a hot, sticky day. It only takes moments to throw together.
I served it up warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. I don't know if that is traditional but it sure was delicious. You will find links to the other Swedish creations at the bottom of this post. I can't wait to see what the other's made.
