Rhubarb recipe roundup

So many ways to enjoy delicious, versatile rhubarb!

One of my fondest childhood memories is of sneaking out to the rhubarb patch and pulling a stalk to devour it on the spot as a tasty snack. I wasn’t as fond of the stewed rhubarb my mother often prepared so I felt that I was getting my fair share of this juicy springtime treat by eating it straight from the garden. Today, I love rhubarb in just about any form. Rhubarb freezes beautifully so it’s a good idea to harvest it before it starts to get tough (and high in oxalic acid) towards the end of June. Below are a few of my favourite rhubarb recipes; use this site’s search facility to look for some other great ways to enjoy rhubarb. To view the recipes referenced below, click on the titles.
