I’ve been trying to make the most of our rhubarb. Nothing we’ve planted, and growing as it does in various odd spots, it’s fun to tramp about and harvest. (Incidentally, I can’t believe I JUST learned that you are meant to pull and not cut rhubarb!)
So far I’ve made rhubarb muffins and rhubarb oatmeal scones (instead of apple). I also tried a small batch of rhubarb chutney, which was so successful I made a larger batch and canned it. And most recently a rhubarb pie. My pastry left a little to be desired, but the filling was perfect.
I feel like this is just the beginning of the rhubarb, so I’ll probably end up exploring more rhubarb recipes. I’m learning that sometimes baking recipes are too quick to sweeten the rhubarb into submission, so I generally cut back to let the rhubarb shine, or zing. And I’m particularly interested in the non-dessert recipes. Let me know if you have any!
