We picked rhubarb from the organic garden at the back of the school beside our yard. We went inside to the school kitchen and washed our hands. We did this in groups as the kitchen is too small. Everyone else worked in the halla beside the kitchen while the group cooked. We put an apron on and cut off the leaves from the rhubarb. We then washed the rhubarb and cut it into small pieces. We put it into a saucepan, added some sugar and some hot water. Then teacher turned on the cooker and put the saucepan on it. We watched it bubble and had to stir it. Teacher tested the rhubarb with the wooden spoon to see if it was soft.
We let the rhubarb cool in a bowl on the windowsill while we were tidying up. When it was cool enough we put it in a cup with some vanilla yogurt and ate it. Some people did not like it and some people loved it. Some people liked it without the yogurt. We had great fun cooking.
