Well, just did our first havest of rhubarb, I hate that we start our season so late :(. We have three Smallish plants that are doubling in size every year.

Today we cut almost seven pounds, so now I'm trying to find things to do with it. I personally dislike the stuff but my hubby and parents, brothers and sisters all like it.

Today I made a strawberry rhubarb pie, have an order to make another tomorrow for a friend. Strawberries are so expensive up here I don't make much off selling them. A pint is about 4-5 dollars, so before charging for my time, effort, and everything
we figured that I make about a dollar charging ten bucks lol. I don't know anyone in their right mind who would pay more then that...maybe if I get REALLY good... I just started baking pie last year.

So what do you do with your rhubarb?

Rhubarb is so good & good for you, full of antioxidants. I make rhubarb muffins, stewed rhubarb, and a rhubarb crumble. I never use sugar or white flour so I substitue all the recipes I find online with whole wheat flour, and for sweetening I will use either honey or a wee bit of splenda for the stewed rhubarb. Google rhubarb recipes, you will find tons!!!

I usually bake rhubarb pie if I've rhubarbs, after getting very delicious (tho a bit unhealthy ) reciper for that few years ago.

Vaikka myrsky hetkeksi tyyntyykin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Ja pian taas uusin hönkäyksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Hei tuu mun luo, pieneksi hetkeksi. Puhutaan, varjoni, valkoiseksi enkeliksi."

Rhubarb jam and Rhubarb crumble. Love it with some liquid cream mixed in.

As a kid, our neighbours behind the pasture grew rhubarb and gave us a paper sack full every now and again. I simply loved to eat it raw! Such an interesting experience. Now that I have discovered strawberry rhubarb pie, I am in love! It's my birthday "cake" every year, and by far my favourite treat/dessert/pie/baked good. Yum!

I have said what I have said. I have not said what I have not said.
