Put the rhubarb into a shallow baking tray & add the syrup mixture. Toss to coat all the rhubarb.

Roast 30-40 minutes. You want the rhubarb to be tender but not mushy & I like it to be slightly leathery with a little bit of golden colour.

I watched Jamies mate from ther River cottage roast rhubarb drizzled with honey a few weeks back in the \"Spring\" series on tv. It got me going, so I made a batch, then a second batch with honey & my homemade vanilla syrup.

Then something I had read by Stephanie Alexander came creeping back to me. She adds a small peice of rose scented geranium leaf to one of her rhubarb dishs.

I make my own vanilla syrup by boiling up 1 cup sugar with 1/2 cup water & adding a scraped out/used vanilla pod. I keep this in a sterilised jar in the fridge & use it to to flavour various things or as a sauce for desserts.

I recently bought a vial of the essential ol of rose geranium so to a jar I added some honey, some syrup & 1 drop of the oil. I tossed the rhubarb in this mixture in a baking tray & then roasted in a moderate/hot oven for half an hour or so.
