Rhubarb how I love thee

Like Tree7Likes

I wish I had a good place to plant some. I drive by a house that has this beautiful rhubarb and they let it go to seed- it breaks my heart. I keep telling SO that I am going to do a midnight rhubarb raid!!!!

Awww thanks rou!! I wish I had someone near that had an over abundance I'd rhubarb!! I tried to freeze it once and it did not work at all. I thought I should thaw it before I used it and it turned to mush. Maybe you should use it frozen?? I dunno.

It probably has too much water content to freeze well??

I used to make a mean strawberry-rhubarb pie...the tartness of the rhubarb set off the strawberries nicely. Mmmm.
My sister made me a huge bowl of rhubarb sauce yesterday. I stood in the kitchen and ate it. Nothing else. It was mmm mmm good.

Yep, you can even buy frozen rhubarb in certain countries. Good for mousse!

Xcptnl, I totally got a Pushing Daisies image of dressing up as cat burglars to go raid someone's rhubarb patch and come back to make pies.

First you complained about the perfectly pleasant perfect weather that was perfect and now you chime in to remind us that you dare to dislike rhubarb?! OFF TO THE WEST COAST AND THEIR INFERIOR HOTHOUSE-GROWN RHUBARB, HERETIC!
She might still be fun to take with us on the rhubarb raid.

Awe man. This just makes me miss my dad's home-made saskatoon-rhubarb pie. Wild berries and home-grown rhubarb! Yummy. :3

Or we just wait til we visit home and eat some made from the rhubarb in my grandparents' garden. Yuuuuuummmm.


Xcptnl, I vote you go and raid the rhubarb, and then drop a fresh-baked pie on their doorstep the next morning. Just make sure to get enough for more than one pie.

I really love strawberry rhubarb pies and rhubarb pies. So I'm right there with you on the rhubarb love.

I've never prepared anything with rhubarb. I don't really know how.

I went by the rhubarb house tonight. I think I have a plan. I will be the driver, Spring1onu will distract anyone that might notice 3 woman all dressed in black humming the mission impossible theme song and Saria will get the most succulent stalks of rhubarb!!!

It's ONNNNNNNN.
