Baked custard with preserved rhubarb

A simple baked custard is one of life’s little delights!  Whether encased in a crispy pastry crust, or just on its own, it’s a demonstration of how very few ingredients can be combined to make something truly delicious.  In this recipe we have served it with some simple preserved rhubarb to cut through the richness.  Serves 2
