It’s a rhubarb revival!

Posted by Lipglossiping On February - 27 - 2011

Weekends were made for slovenliness – the respite before the manic new week ahead.  I use the time to treat my skin to a bit of makeup-free pampering, I also like to spoil the family with a treat or two…

Yesterday was all about the rhubarb!

Seeing as I’m still on my diet (but getting there slowly!), I had to gaze at the crumble from a distance.  Check out the whipped cream/crumble ratio… that’s how we roll around these here parts.

Not *quite* as delicious but tasty nonetheless is Lanolips Rhubarb Lip Ointment… a sheer, moisturising balm with a hint of colour and sparkle.

The more I’m getting into wearing strong lip colours, the less use I have for these sheer coloured tubes.  I apply my Lanolips 101 before bed at night anyway so don’t need the daytime moisturisation these provide.  But if you’re more of a natural lip girl, these are definitely worth checking out.

My favourites from the coloured range are: Rhubarb, Apples and Dark Honey but definitely check out Sunshine too if you like warmer colours.

♦ 1 large tin of rhubarb (unless fresh is in season!)
Brown Sugar to taste depending on how tart you like it! (I use about 2 tbsp sprinkled over the rhubarb and 1 over the top of the crumble before baking)
♦ Ready made crumble topping (what? it *is* the weekend!)
♦ 1 tsp of ground cinammon
♦ 1 1/2 tsp of mixed spice

That’s it!

Drain the rhubarb and lay in an ovenproof dish ♦ Add a sprinkle of brown sugar and the spices ♦ Cover with the crumble topping and press down to compact with your fingers (or back of a spoon if you’re a hygiene freak!) ♦ Sprinkle the remaining brown sugar ontop and lightly scratch the surface with a fork to ‘rough’ it up a bit!

Put it in a pre-heated oven (200°c) for 40-45 minutes and pray to the Gods of crispiness that yours comes out with a crunchy top!

Serve with cream or custard… I nearly always use whipping cream just ‘cos that’s how my Nan done did it!

    Living in the Yorkshire Rhubarb triangle am dying at the thought of tinned rhubarb! Made rhubarb crumble last night (spooky I know!) with fresh, forced Yorkshire rhubarb and an all butter crumble As I am yet to start my diet I dived into a bowl the size of my head, complete with custard. Complete heaven if I am being honest, shame about size of arse though.

    • I know!!! I’ll put my wrist out for a slap! In my defence, there was no fresh rhubarb to be found and I couldn’t even find frozen!

      And as for the crumble? Well… caught bang to rights on that one… sheer laziness.

      “all butter crumble” three words that guarantee a belly grumble. *sigh*

    I admire your will power because that looks SCRUMMY. I’m salivating just looking at the photo. Also on a diet at the mo, bah! x

    I got Dark Honey and Apples a few months ago and I always carry one of them in my purse. They are wonderful for dry lips!

    Thanks for the recipe, I’m definitely trying it.

    I bought rhubarb and custard sweets from M and S today!

    This is all.

  8. Vijaya says:

    Yay! Recipe!

    I’m not into the sheer colors either, or at least not generally.

  9. Rae says:

    Yum! That rhubarb crumble looks delish 🙂 (Nevermind the Lanolips, lol)

  10. Jen W says:

    The lanolips rhubarb looks very pretty. I’m not sure it would show up very much on my pigmented lips though boo 🙁

    I do love Lanolips Apples!
