The small plant that I dug up from my parents' place last year and divided into four tiny plants for our garden has grown immensely! I've baked two wonderful rhubarb desserts in the past two days and you can barely tell that I've been harvesting the rhubarb! All this from a plant that could barely yield enough to make one 8x8" pan of rhubarb crisp in one summer! Let's just say the previous owners of my parents' place shouldn't have planted it under a row of mature pines in full shade if they wanted to eat rhubarb! I plan on freezing some rhubarb, make punch to freeze and have on hand to serve through out the winter, make strawberry-rhubarb jam and bake some yummy desserts. We especially like to make strawberry rhubarb pie and freeze the unbaked pies, so that we can bake them in winter and have fresh pie! If anyone out there wants some rhubarb, please contact us and we can work out some kind of deal for it. Check out my recipe blog for some great rhubarb recipes as I intend to add more recipes in the coming days.
