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.

2. To make the crumble, combine the butter and sugar together in a bowl until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs, then mix in the flour.

3. Sprinkle the crumble over the rhubarb and bake in the preheated oven for 10 minutes. Remove allow to cool slightly and serve with ice cream or double cream or even custard, if desired.
