8 Rhubarb Recipes You Need to Try Now

If Rhubarb were worth its weight in gold, I would be rich. Filthy, stinking rich. The kind of rich that leads to having six or seven Pomeranians, all with French names that prance around in matching Armani bow ties. In my scenario, the dogs would probably all be mutts, with names like Rico and Cujo. I would have a pool with water slides and an attached hot tub. I might even have sand trucked in to make my own private beach. Basically, I would watch every episode of MTV’s Cribs and just take notes. Does anyone else remember Cribs?

Sadly, last time I checked the exchange (this is something people do, right?), rhubarb was no where near as valuable as gold. In fact, we have reached that magical time of year when people are tripping over themselves to get rid of it. It’s simply everywhere. Instead of getting rid of eat, I am going to eat it. Eat it all. I may have to make everything on this list twice, but it’s getting used.

My love affair with food began on stepstools in the kitchens of the women in my family. Handing my great-grandmother carrots to grate for coleslaw, licking the beaters covered in my grandmother’s peanut butter frosting, and watching my mother cook up Italian dishes covered in cheese. To this day, I love cheese. Besides cheese, I love painting, ocean air, and the smell of tar after it’s rained. My husband Josh and I have created a little suburban farm with our Layla-Bug, a ridiculously hyper dog, and a one-eyed chicken. Someday, we hope to upgrade to a real country farm.

  1. It is not gold here but it is pretty expensive. Rhubarb goes for $5.99/lb at the local supermarkets in Tennessee! Which makes me crazy since I have usually grown it in my back yard. (its too hot for it here) I have a list of northern gals to e-mail when it goes on sale and we line up to buy it. It is very hard to get and am hoping that one more box will show up so I can try some of your recipes! I usually make jam but also try something new every year. The Portland Farmer’s Market sounds fun – yet another reason to we look forward to retirement in Maine!
