Rhubarb And Pistachio Eton Mess Sundae...

New Rhubarb Conserve:

A deliciously British summer flavour is the newest member of the Bonne Maman family. A wonderful way to enjoy the finest seasonal rhubarb year round, new Rhubarb Conserve.

As with all Bonne Maman conserves, made of the finest ripe ingredients and some cane sugar, this delectable new conserve offers a perfect balance of sweetness and typical rhubarb ‘zing’ that rhubarb lovers will adore. The unique soft set texture of Bonne Maman conserves are perfect for spreading on toast or croissants, topping scones or adding to summer bakes.

Originating in China, where it’s root has long been used as a herbal medicine to give a positive and balancing effect on the digestive system, rhubarb first started appearing in Europe in the seventeenth century and has long been a favourite in Britain and the north of France, as a very seasonal plant that doesn't like hot and dry climates.

Rhubarb is enjoying something of a kitchen renaissance, featuring on menus nationwide - in numerous dishes hot or cold and even summer drinks, beers wine and cheese. As well as new Rhubarb Conserve being a delectable topping for a slice of toast or scone, Bonne Maman’s Rhubarb Compote is also becoming an increasingly popular choice on granola or yogurt.
