  • Rinse the Rhubarb well, remove the ends and slice into pieces no more than an inch thick.
  • Place the Rhubarb in a small pan with approx 1/2 inch of water in the bottom and gently poach until it falls apart when touched, but not so much that it is a mush.
  • Add your Vanilla...set aside to cool. For the crumble: rub together all the remaining ingredients (using the tips of your fingers) except the nuts, you know that it is bound together enough when the mixture falls through your hands like lumpy sand..don't over work the mixture..lumps are good..they add texture.
  • Finally add your pecans.
  • Place your Rhubarb in a oven proof dish approx 10inch square..sprinkle the crumble on the top evenly and bake in the oven at 150 degrees for 40 mins or until golden. Set aside for 10 mins before serving with creme frache....mmm enjoy the fruits of your labour.
