    Notes

    To toast the almonds and sesame seeds: heat a frying pan (no oil) to a medium-high heat and put the nuts or seeds into the pan, stir occasionally and watch carefully until they take on a little tinge of brown.
    To roast the rhubarb: heat the oven to 170C, chop the rhubarb into even sized pieces and place on a baking tray in a single layer. Sprinkle with the sugar and bake in the oven for 10-15 minutes until they still hold their shape, but are soft enough for a knife to be inserted easily. Leave to cool on the tray.
