Forcing rhubarb is a peculiar culture - it involves both heat and darkness, so that the young shoots rapidly extend in a frantic search for light.

Originally it was produced to fill the gap in the desert fruit calendar (prior to cold storage techniques), but now it is deemed infinitely better than its outdoor counterpart and is gleefully anticipated at the turn of the year.

Sweet and delicious, it is definitely one to try!
