Easy Rhubarb Turnovers Recipe

A great alternative to Rhubarb crumble! I have started to get into the habit of bookmarking a recipe I like on a blog, or to Pin it on Pinterest. Much better than  spending hours trying to remember which of the many blogs I think I have seen a wonderful recipe on.
Rhubarb Turnovers a Rhubarb Recipe
At this time of year I start to get quite a store of stewed rhubarb collecting in the freezer, as the harvesting of the rhubarb from the garden comes to an end. I knew I had seen a recipe that would be perfect for using defrosted fruit from the freezer, a change from the usual crumble. 

So as I already have my stewed rhubarb defrosting the only other main ingredient I need is a packet of ready made puff pastry. Which lucky for me I already had in the fridge, having used a small amount to make Salmon en croute. 
Stewed rhubarb
Packet of ready made puff pastry
Beaten egg

  • Preheat your oven to 200 degrees C
  • You need to cut the pastry into squares, size of the squares depends on how hungry you are!  
  • Fold them diagonally lightly to form a triangle then fold it back to a square
  • Use a little egg wash around the edges and add a small amount of the stewed rhubarb.
  • Fold the pastry and seal*
  • Place on a lined baking sheet 
  • Egg wash the turnovers and sprinkle with sugar

*I loved Urvashi's tip when sealing the edges with a fork, dip it in flour to stop it sticking to the pastry - it worked a treat and looked great.

Bake in the oven for 10-15 minutes depending on the size of your turnovers, you will know when they are baked they will have risen evenly and be lovely and puffed up.

Leave to cool, then tuck in.

I made a number of large Rhubarb Turnovers and a few smaller ones, they looked far much more dainty. These were dished out on Fathers Day and tasted fabulous, will definitely try these with other fruits.
