 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1       lb           Fresh rhubarb
                         Juice and rind of one
                         Sugar to taste
    1                    Sachet gelatine
                         Cream substitute of some
                         Sort: yogurt, fromage frais,
                         Evaporated milk,
   Stew the rhubarb with the orange rind/juice, sugar,
   and as little water as you can get away with.  Melt in
   the gelatine (if you are vegetarian or vegan, use
   another gelling agent), and then put through food
   processor to make puree.  Add the cream substitute - I
   would use fromage frais, but yogurt is fine, or you
   might like whisked evaporated milk, if you like the
   taste.  Then refrigerate until set.
   If, like me, the mere thought of rhubarb sets your
   teeth on edge (it’s one of the very few things I
   really can't eat!), then use a different fruit -
   gooseberries, perhaps, or dried apricots.
   Gooseberries are nicest if stewed with elderflowers,
   if you can get them, and dried apricots don't need any
   help. I've not quoted quantities for the sugar,
   because it depends on your taste.
