Recipe – Pimms-Stewed Rhubarb and Rice Pudding

Rhubarb is just coming into season now. I love this bright pink fruit and it usually finds itself in a crumble in our house to be enjoyed with Sunday lunch. I wanted to try something a bit different this time and make a fruit compote. I fancied making some rice pudding so rather than just stewing the rhubarb in sugar and water, I decided to put a summery twist on this pudding and use Pimms!


I didn’t have any of the original Pimms in my cupboard but I did have some of this limited edition ‘Blackberry and Elderflower’ left which worked brilliantly. To add another summery twist, I added the peel and juice of one orange too.


The below amounts made enough for two people plus half a jam jar of fruit compote left over which I plan to finish off with my morning granola or a bowl of ice cream.

100g pudding rice

600ml of milk (whole milk will be creamier but I used my usual skimmed)

Some grated nutmeg (optional)

3 tablespoons of caster sugar

The peel and juice of one orange
