Rhubarb and Orange Cream

No ratings yet
If you do not have a blender, simply mash the rhubarb thoroughly until it is a smooth, creamy pulp. Use the finest part of the grater to grate the orange rind. Do not grate for too long in one place, but simple take off the zest, or the orange-coloured part of the skin, because the pith underneath is rather bitter.
