Ingredients
  Young rhubarb 1 Pound
  Ginger syrup 1 Tablespoon
  Caster sugar 4 Ounce
  Water 3 Tablespoon
  Gelatin 1⁄2 Ounce
  Cream cheese 8 Ounce
  Cream 1⁄4 Pint, soured
  Eggs 2 , separated
  Butter 2 Ounce
  Ginger biscuits 2 Ounce
  Digestive biscuits 2 Ounce
Directions

Line an 8 inch (20 cm) cake tin with a circle of greaseproof paper.
Cut the rhubarb into short lengths and place in a saucepan with the ginger syrup and sugar.
Place the saucepan over a low heat and simmer until the rhubarb is soft, stirring occasionally; this will take about 10 to 15 minutes.
Put the water in a small bowl or cup and sprinkle over the gelatine; leave to soak for 5 minutes.
Take the fruit from the heat and stir in the soaked gelatine until it has dissolved.
Put in a blender or sieve to make a puree, turn into a bowl and leave to cool, stirring occasionally until the mixture starts to set.
Cream the cheese and soured cream together and beat in the egg yolks.
Then stir in the rhubarb puree.
Whisk the egg whites with a hand rotary or electric whisk until they are stiff and then fold them into the mixture.
Turn into the tin and chill in the refrigerator for an hour or until set.
Melt the butter in a small pan, finely crush the biscuits and stir into the melted butter.
Spread over the cheesecake and return to the refrigerator to chill for a further hour.
Turn out onto a serving dish and, if liked, decorate with swirls of cream and small pieces of stem ginger.

I dont understand how this is vegetarian when it is made with animal bones, unless there is a gelatin out there that is vegetarian. ifood need to check the recipe before listing something as vegetarian

Hi, There is no tag saying this is vegetarian. The tag says vegetable which I think is for the rhubarb! To avoid confusion, I have made alterations to the tags. If you are a vegetarian,you can still make this cheesecake. Use agar-agar or "China Grass." This is vegetarian equivalent to gelatin. You may have to read the instructions on the packet but basically it has to be softened in cold water and then dissolved by warming, just like gelatin.
