Strawberries and Rhubarb

At the weekend we picked some strawberries from a local PYO farm. This year has seen a very sizable crop but the damp weather has put people off picking it, so there were tonnes left when we went. A friend also gave us a few kilos of rhubarb.

Yesterday, on my day off, I cooked the strawberries and rhubarb (about 1:1 by weight) with a sprinkle of sugar and some vanilla. I then made an "Eve's" pudding with the fruit stew. It's very good. I've decided that strawberries taste much better this way - served cold with cream they are so boring.
