This recipe solves that problem of what do to with rhubarb besides make a pie. Rhubarb combined with ginger and cinnamon with a touch of heat from cayenne makes for a piquant topping to fresh goat cheese and a sweet counterpoint to a peppery leaf of spring arugula.

Ingredients

Rhubarb-Thyme Jam:

Other ingredients:

  • 1 baguette, sliced into rounds and brushed lightly on one side with extra-virgin olive oil Add to list
  • 4 ounces fresh goat cheese Add to list
  • 1 cup arugula leaves Add to list

Preparation

Put all the jam ingredients into a saucepan. Bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer and cook, stirring often, for about 30 minutes until thickened. Cool to room temperature and remove cinnamon stick.

Toast bread in a toaster or under a preheated broiler until lightly browned. Spread with goat cheese, top with a leaf of arugula and then a dollop of rhubarb-thyme jam.

Garnish with thyme flowers if available.
