Rhubarb Pie

 
Rhubarb pie

Spring is the season of rhubarb and strawberries! So I thought I would post my own recipe for a pie using this delicious fruit. The great thing is that these two really do go together beautifully in terms of flavour. A match made in heaven!

Ingredients for 8 people

The tart base is made of shortcrust pastry. I personally add eggs to the pastry, but you can substitute milk or even water for the vegans amongst you.


250 g sieved flour
125 g butter
100 g castor sugar
1 vanilla pod
2 small eggs (1 full egg and 1 egg yolk)
Pinch of salt

Filling:
4 stalks of rhubarb, washed and cut into 1 cm pieces
Pack of strawberries, washed and halved
2 cm ginger without skin, grated
100 g sugar and a sachet of vanilla sugar


Method

In a food processor: mix the butter and sugar, add the eggs, the first half of the flour with a pinch of salt, and then the second half of the flour, again with a pinch of salt. 

Remove from the food processor and kneed briefly with your hands.
Allow the pastry to rest in the fridge.

Filling:
Mix the ginger, rhubarb and sugar in a bowl and allow to rest for a good 30 mins (the longer it rests, the more moisture comes out, making the tart less wet).
Roll out the pastry into a circle and place in the tart case.
Allow the rhubarb to drain.
First arrange the strawberries in a layer and then add the rhubarb over the top.

Crumble:
In a bowl, mix 150 g sieved flour, 150 g castor sugar and a sachet of vanilla sugar. Scatter this mixture evenly over the rhubarb.
Cut thin flakes of butter and lay these over the top and finish with sliced almonds.
You can mix the sliced almonds with the remaining egg white and a little sugar to make the top layer crunchy.
Place in a pre-heated oven at 200 degrees for 40 minutes.


Serve with

Delicious served hot with vanilla ice cream or just eaten cold.

TROUT TARTARE
TROUT TARTARE
23/07/2014 -

We discovered our trout tartare while staying overnight in France near the Lac d’Aiguebelette. In an excellent local restaurant there was “lake fish tartare” on the menu and it was delicious! We thought it would work with our trout at “Le Vieux Mouline” and so we asked our chef to make us a version of this dish when we got home... It’s nice to be able to try a fish tartare that is not the Red Tuna Tartare that you see everywhere... And, what is more, it uses a really local product !
