Got Rhubarb?

IMG_0354We interrupt this program for an advertisement for…free rhubarb!

We have been blessed with an abundant patch of rhubarb that is thriving despite the chickweed invasion in our vegetable garden. And I haven’t harvested any of it.

So rather than waste this amazing produce, I’d like to give it away to anyone in the area in need of some rhubarb.

Would you like some? Or do you know someone who would?

If so, please email me via this blog with your contact information so we can arrange having you stop by and taking whatever you can use. And maybe I might get the courage up to use some myself. Someone has already provided me with several tasty recipes. Maybe having someone passionate about rhubarb stop by is just what I need to get motivated!

We now resume our regularly scheduled program.

  1. umm, memories of canned rhubard in the dead of winter. Pucker up, here comes the cobbler!

    You have the bandwidth to do some canning?

    The easiest thing to do is cut it up, put it in a pot, put in sugar (1 cup of sugar for every 4 cups of rhubarb) and simmer until tender. Put in jars and give away to all your friends and relatives. It’s great on ice cream but is good straight, too, as long as you warm it up first.

    A great cookbook I’ve found is Every Which Way with Rhubarb by Amanda Brannon. She’s from Palmer.

    Have fun!

    I made the mistake of transplanting the Rhubarb plant I had when I moved from one home to another way back in 1975, I have been trying to get rid of it/KILL it with no luck! I even put in a request to the USAF to use it as a target for “Smart Bomb” training!!

  4. If I were in the area, I’d be there in a heartbeat…I heart rhubarb…

  5. Maybe a food bank would be interested?

    Cooperative Extension Service has some Rhubarb ideas.
