1. Preheat the oven to 180C/160C fan/Gas4. Cut the rhubarb into 5cm (2in) pieces and place on a baking tray. Sprinkle with 4 tbsp water and the caster sugar and roast for 10 minutes. Once the rhubarb is cooked, remove it from the oven and sprinkle the ginger over it. Mix together and place in a ovenproof dish about 3-4 cm ( 1 1/4-1 1/2 in) deep.
