We went to the market today! It really is my favourite day of the week. We took our newly acquired granny trolley and found plenty of bargains.
My favourite was definitely the rhubarb. As soon as I asked the man to remover the leaves i regretted it as it would have made for beautiful photos.
Anyway... I bought 2 bunches of strawberries aswell so I thought I would stew them with orange and rose!
Rose flavoured anything is amazing but so perfectly subtle in this recipe. It has such a gentle, feminine effect that I know lots of people cannot stand but personally that aroma is just so so pleasing to me.
It really only takes about 15 minutes for the rhubarb to become soft so make sure you don't over cook it. It is nice with a little bit of bite.
