Rhubarb-apple dessert

Hi healthy eaters!
We haven't told you it yet, but we're huge fans of rhubarb. So we decided to make up some recipes with this specific product and make something magical in various of ways. What we decided to do was jelly dessert containing rhubarb and apple in one. Jelly desserts are well-known in our country, because Poles can serve it with anything they wish, as long as it's tasty. Admittedly, apples are so-called ‘polish fruit’ as Poles eat them in great amounts. Nonetheless, rhubarb is not so common and widespread, that is why we would like to say a few words about nutrition of this veggie. Basically, it’s one of the least calorie vegetables, as it contains 21 calories/100 grams. It’s rich in vitamin A, vitamins B of every kind and additionally vitamin K, which plays a potential role in bone health by promoting ‘osteotrophic activity ( bone formation and strengthening)’. If you have never tried this veggie, you should do so with any shadow of doubt.

Wholesome cooking!


Serves 4

2 cups chopped rhubarb
3 cups water
3 tbsp brown sugar
1 apple (grated)
2 tbsp potato flour

Cook rhubarb in water with cinnamon and sugar for 10-15 minutes until tender. Add apples and cook for 1-2 minutes. Then add potato flour combined with 1/2 cup of water constantly stiring.
