I harvested my first crop of rhubarb this weekend. This is when rhubarb is at its best – early in the season when the stalks are ripe but before they get too big and woody
…and before the hobos steal it (you laugh, but I used to have three plants – now I only have two).
Do you have any rhubarb recipes you like, KC? I’m always on the lookout for new ways to use rhubarb even though I have this cookbook:
It’s not a bad book, but I’m dismayed that many of the cake recipes call for cake mix.
Last night I made a simple crisp
and this morning, as you know, I made some wonderfully light rhubarb muffins.
Here’s the best recipe I know for rhubarb – I don’t think you’ll find it in a book:
- Be really young, like 8 or 4 years old
- Pull a stalk of rhubarb from the garden
- Dip the end in the sugarbowl
- Eat the sugar-coated end
- Repeat steps 3 and 4
- Don’t let mom catch you
