Rhubarb

Haven't a clue what galangal is, or need to know what to use if you can't buy creme fraiche locally? We're sure our knowledgeable members will be able to point you in the right direction...

Rhubarb

Well - darn it - that answers my problem - my rhubarb seems to have died over the severe winter we have had - I was just wondering over the last few days if it shouldn't be showing signs of coming through by now - & if yours is that far advanced Sam _ think that confirms that mine has given up the ghost! - A visit to the garden centre would seem to be needed!

Sprouting Rhubarb

Christine, don't give up just yet with your rhubarb, I see Sam comes from Worthing so the temperature would be a bit warmer than Lancashire. My rhubarb is just starting to sprout and I live a wee bit further south than Sam - so maybe it has to do with the strain??

Sprouting rhubarb

Hi Christine, glad your pink stuff has sprouted, mine is about 6ins tall now so it shouldn't be long before I have enough to cook - and I still have some left over from last season in the freeezer!!
