I was asked to paint a mural for a primary school so here's the progress so far!

1 lb rhubarb
1/2 tsp Chinese five spice
Juice of 2 limes
A few pieces of sushi ginger
2 handfuls of raisins
1 cup water
1 cup caster sugar
Put all the ingredients in a pot and bring to the boil. Then simmer away until everything is nice and squishy and the liquid has reduced down to a syrup.
Pour into sterilised jars, leave to cool and then cover. I put mine into small jars to give to people as presents! It makes about 3 small jars, or one regular jam jar, so you might need to double up the mixture if you want to make a big batch.

We also made some maki sushi with peppers and some miso soup to make a meal out of this.
Green tea afterwards of course!

8oz plain flour
1 tbsp baking powder
2.5 oz light brown sugar
1 large egg
150 ml semi-skimmed milk
40 ml sunflower oil
1 tsp vanilla essence
4 oz blueberries
3 oz strawberries
Set oven to heat at 170 Celsius. (my oven is extra hot though so you might need to turn it up a little).
2. Whisk the wet ingredients together and add to the mixture.
3. Chop strawberries; fold in the fruit.
4. Divide the mixture into twelve cupcake cases (I use silicone ones so I don't need a cupcake tray) and bake for 15-20 mins. It might be nice to sprinkle either a few seeds or a little sugar on the top for a bit of a glaze as well, depending on whether you're going for a "healthy" muffin or not...
5. Leave on a wire rack to cool a little and enjoy with a cuppa!
