I have a special place in my heart for rhubarb - I think it's a very under-appreciated foodstuff! It's easy to grow yourself, and if you don't have your own patch, you probably have a neighbour or friend eager to unload their excess - and free food is a good thing. Rhubarb is also easy to freeze (simply chop and portion into freezer bags or containers) so you don't have to let any surplus go to waste.
Way back in 2011, I shared some of my favourite rhubarb recipes, and I thought it was about time to share some more! These are all recipes I have my eye on to try this growing season:
Lacto-fermented Rhubarb Chutney
Strawberry Rhubarb Sorbet
Pineapple Rhubarb Jam
Roasted Rhubarb Salad
Spring Salad with Rhubarb Vinaigrette
Caramelized Rhubarb Pork Stir-Fry
You can also substitute rhubarb for half of the blueberries in my Easy Blueberry Oatmeal Squares or use half rhubarb and half strawberries to make strawberry rhubarb squares instead.
For a tangy breakfast treat, try adding about a cup of chopped rhubarb to my Baked Oatmeal recipe.
And if you happen to have a copy of my book, definitely make the Rhubarb Cinnamon Crunch Cake - it's one of my family's favourites!
