A while ago, my mum let me try her amazing Rhubarb, Raisin & Ginger Muffins. One bite and I was sold, I had to have her rhubarb muffins recipe!
I’ve always been a fan of rhubarb and have fond childhood memories of being able to go to the bottom of my granddad’s garden and pick a stick to eat raw. We would always bring them back to the house to wash it and chop the ends off. Our grandma would then give us a small bowl of sugar so that we could dip it as we munched our way through the rhubarb stick.
