OK, so, I had 800g of Rhubarb, a bottle of champagne we got free at Christmas, and a jar of Opies' stem ginger in syrup to kill. This is what I did:

Firstly, cut the rhubarb into 1cm chunks, and threw it in a big pan with 300g sugar, 600ml water, and all the syrup from the jar of stem ginger. Bring it to the boil and then let it simmer for 15-20 minutes, until the rhubarb lumps are tender and the liquid is pink and rhubarby. You now have some nice tender rhubarb chunks and a lot of pink, sweet, rhubarb-with-a-hint-of-gingery liquid, and can move on to the actual recipes:
Rhubarb Fizz Jellies )
Rhubarb and Ginger Muffins )
Rhubarb Bucks' Fizz/Mimosas - with picture )
Rhubarb Gin Cocktail )

So there we go, four nice easy recipes to use up some store cupboard staples. I think I might have to send some of the muffins to school with daughter, though...

OK, it's not that goth to eat flapjacks in the first place, but this is darker than your average flapjack.

(In the method bit, I have actually noted all the places I would wash my hands when making this. Thorough hand washing is ingrained in me from having worked in a commercial kitchen; there are some people that think I go a bit over the top with this, so I wanted to know what you all think. Maybe you think I don't wash my hands enough! Do comment!)
