Rhubarb

Have you ever cooked with rhubarb? I haven't, ever, I haven't even tried it. But after seeing all these beauties over at Martha Stewart, I am very very tempted. Love the color and the texture seems divine, I wonder though... what do they taste like?? 
Any recommended recipes?

  3. I love rhubard. It can be quite sharp, but if you add just the right amount of sugar, it's delicious! My fav pudding is rhubard crumble. Happy weekend!

  5. My Dad loves rhubarb so perhaps I will go over to Martha Stewart or epicurious and pick a recipe so that I can make his day.

    Actually isn't rhubarb big in the UK? I think that is where my Dad picked up his love for rhubarb pie.

    Have a fabulous weekend!

  17. Rhubarb with pineapple is delish in a cobbler or pie. A good combination of sweet and tart!

  19. rhubarb is sooo yummy! when we were living in britain last year, there was a season in spring where we would buy bundles of rhubarb at the farmer's market every saturday -- we ate it nearly every day!
    this is the perfect time to try rhubarb - it's in season! try to find rhubarb that is small, short and thin and organic - if it's not force-grown it will be even more delicious! your farmer's market would be a great place!
    and this is a yummy recipe, and is so beautifully presented! -

  28. #1: Rubarb is DIVINE. Especially when mixed with strawberries. I chop both up, toss them with some sugar, fresh squeezed OJ, a bit of orange zest, and a pinch of nutmeg. This can be baked in a pie shell, or baked with an oatmeal/brown sugar topping as strawberry-rhubarb crisp. Yum.

    #2: I noticed your question over at HighHeeledFoot - A while back I posted all about how I love using Command Adhesive doodads as a renter. They are foolproof and work great! http://theborrowedabode.com/2010/03/rental-remedy-hooked-on-command/

  36. I am planning on getting heavy into cooking with rhubarb when I move to England... I'm all about a nice rhubarb crisp. :) Although...I like to mix some berries in for a sweeter kick!

  37. I make a killer Strawberry and Rhubarb pie - from the Joy of Cooking. It's awesome. In fact, I am making it tomorrow. And you're in London, right? Have you not had rhubarb and custard hard candies? Head to your nearest corner shop and get some - the loose kind that they weigh out for you. YUMMY! I grew up in England and miss them!

  40. I love rhubarb. I think its a big Northwest thing. We used to have a plant in my backyard growing up in MT, and they are EVERYWHERE here in WA. Funniest thing...I was literally about to go to the farm across the street and buy some strawberries and rhubarb to make my hubby a pie today. Rhubarb is definitely in season so nows the time to try it....way better than hot house.

    I am going to post my recipe and pictures after I make it (post it early next week) if you want to pop in and see! http://findingmyaloha.blogspot.com

  41. Love rhubarb.
    Slice rhubarb into 5cm chunks, rinse, put in a saucepan with the little water still stuck on it after you rinsed it, the juice of an orange and a few tablespoons of sugar (you need to counter it's natural sourness).
    Cook over medium heat for about 10 minutes or until soft (like cooking apples for a pie).
    When cooled down this is divine as breakfast with muesli and yoghurt or with ice cream for desset. Yum!
    Don't eat the leaves though. They're toxic. Yuk!
