Yorkshire Rhubarb Delight

I came across ‘Yorkshire Rhubarb Delight’ in a local recipe book and was attracted to the easy-going style of it.


  • Rhubarb (“as much as you like“, says the recipe, but around a 16 oz/ 1lb in weight of trimmed rhubarb will do the job)
  • Sugar to taste
  • Packet of any red jelly


  1. Chop and simmer rhubarb with a little water until it is soft
  2. Add a couple of spoons of sugar to sweeten the pulp
  3. Add the jelly and stir until it is dissolved
  4. Leave to set.

Easy, or what?
