Rosy Rhubarb Swirls



It's that time of year when rhubarb is plentiful and people try to give it away by the bucket full.  I planted a few plants a year or two ago and I am finally able to get a few cuttings.  I thought about making a pie or a crisp, but those ideas didn't entice me to turn on the oven.

I was reading some old cookbooks the other day and flipped to these little treats.  Honestly, the recipe seemed simple and weird at the same time.  I couldn't fathom how these swirls would turn out when you poured that much liquid syrup over them!

I will try almost anything and thought we should give it a whirl.

I have to say that we all were impressed!  The boys all wanted seconds and I caught a few girls trying to poke their fingers in the pan to get the sweet syrup that had stuck to the bottom.  I am not sure if it is the flaky biscuit, the hint of orange, or the tartness of the rhubarb that give these swirls a refreshing taste.

We will be definitely rolling these out again!



Here is a list of ingredients you will need:

3 cups rhubarb, finely diced
4 teaspoons baking powder
1/3 cup lard or rich cream
2 1/4 cups flour
2/3 cup milk

syrup recipe:

1 1/4 cups water
1 1/2 cups sugar
orange rind

Sugar



First, you need to sift the flour and baking powder together and knead in the lard.  I didn't have lard or rich cream, so I opted to use shortening.  When you have worked the dough, pour in the milk and mix.  You may need to use your hands-  I thought this resembled a pie crust mixed with a biscuit.


Next, roll out the dough to 1/4 inch thick.



Spread the chopped rhubarb over the dough and roll up.  I cut eat slice about 1/2 inch thick or about the thickness of my thumb to the first joint.  I know this is so scientific...



Place in a greased baking dish.

In a pan, mix the sugar, water, and rind.  Bring to a boil and make sure the sugars are dissolved completely.

Pour the syrup over the slices of dough.



Sprinkle with sugar.

Bake at 350 degrees for about 30-40 minutes, depending on your oven.

Cool and serve.



Do you have any great rhubarb recipes?
