- Place rhubarb lengths into a roasting pan, sprinkle with sugar, orange juice and pomegranate molasses, cover with foil and bake at 150 degrees for half an hour without stirring.
- Blitz the macadamia nuts to a crumb consistency. Melt butter in fry pan, add maple syrup, coconut sugar and sea salt to combine. Add the nuts to coat, then transfer them to the oven to caramelize and roast for 8 minutes or until golden. Let them stand and cool to crunch up.
- Pour boiling water into the sink or a roasting dish to help get the pannacotta out. Use a small knife to run around the top of the pannacotta rim. Dunk them for 3 seconds into the hot water and tip them out onto your serving plate.
- Combine the roasted rhubarb, orange segments and vanilla pod, drizzle with rhubarb juices and sprinkle down your salty macadamia nut crumbs.
