What are you going to do with it? I'm surprised her rhubarb was still going. Ours went to seed weeks ago.

I was in the garden section of Home Depot earlier today and saw an amazing amount of bees going from flower to flower. Their little legs were loaded down with pollen. Definitely a smile moment.

Have you researched the Norwegian version of the same? Syttende Mai Rhubarb Pudding

http://www.thevikingsworld.com/Skald.../puddings.html

My grandma made it with tapioca instead of cornstarch.

This one is more of a soup than a pudding:

I have plenty of Danish recipes. The problem is substituting arrowroot for potato starch, which I can't find here. I can only find potato flour and that doesn't work. I used 5 grams of arrowroot for every 100 grams of rhubarb. It was a bit "stretchy". 4 grams of arrowroot for every 100 grams of rhubarb was pretty good. I don't think I will get a exactly the texture I want without the potato starch. The Danish recipes almost all include "nonoxal", which counteracts the oxalic acid.
