Both the Green Teams headed to the Grow Zone this week to harvest some of our lovely Rhubarb! Many of us had never tasted Rhubarb before and none of us had ever harvested it! The leaves were enormous, but we can’t eat the leaves, so we put those in the compost bins.

We took the Rhubarb into the kitchen and washed it. We then chopped it up into little cubes. Adding a little brown sugar, we cooked the rhubarb and it smelt lovely! We then rubbed some flour, brown sugar and butter together to make a crumble. Placing the rhubarb in the bottom of the tray, we sprinkled the crumble on top and baked it in the oven.

Then came the best bit! We all got to eat our lovely fresh rhubarb crumble and some of us had custard on top too!! Lots of staff and pupils said how lovely it smelt and we agreed that it tasted as good as it smelt!
