There is a bit missing, the bit where i forgot the rhubarb was in the oven, and burnt it.
Not fully burnt just heavily caramelised the edges, but enough to rifle through the cupboards in search of a tin of fruit to add to the spoonful of rhubarb left.
No tins of fruit, no jars of weird peaches in honey.
but i did find a jar of stem ginger in syrup which added the necessary hydration, and sweetness.
and a tin of cardamon flavoured evaporated milk which the sell by date said 2006, but it was fine.
The crumble topping was a paleo inspired, ground almond, and coconut oil with the last of a packet of walnuts.
Overall it was a crumble with eastern promise, which exactly what i had planned......
Winging it at the very last minute,
I think this is why so many florists seem to be good cooks.
