Another delicious recipe idea: Rottergrutze

Because rhubarb’s in throughout Autumn, this month we bring you a deliciously good recipe for Rottergrutze (page 138 of the recipe book). The recipe was provided by stallholders Maryanne and Michael Devey from Win’s Creek Honey, and it’s a family favourite.

Maryanne and Michael Devey, Win’s Creek Honey


  • 375g rhubarb, chopped into small pieces
  • ½ lemon/orange zest
  • 3 tablespoons water or orange juice
  • 1 vanilla bean or teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 tablespoons sago
  • 100g ironbark honey
  • 500g raspberries
  • ½ cup Pinto Rose Mead or purple grape juice

Fresh RhubarbMethod

– Soak sago in cold water for 30 minutes and drain.

– In a non-reactive saucepan add first three ingredients, if using grape juice you can add this now too, and bring to a simmer before adding sago.

– Reduce heat to low. Simmer for 15 minutes and stir so sago doesn’t stick to the pan.

– Add honey and stir until melted and lastly add berries for just a few minutes. Do not over-cook. Once cooled if you wish, you can add the Pinto Rose Mead for adults.

Serve chilled with Greek yoghurt.
