Rhubarb how I love thee

Like Tree7Likes

I do like rhubarb, but I really can't justify all the sugar it takes to make it sweet enough to eat.
while y'all are raiding the rhubarb patch, i would like to mention that i have a HUGE patch of lily of the valley in full bloom too!

Rou, we have a small hillside right off our porch covered in lily of the valley and the smell when it blooms is phenomenal. Unfortunately it barely bloomed this year. Maybe it had something to do with the massive amounts of rain we had? I was really looking forward to it since it's our last chance at the smell-o-rama.

I've decided that I'll never get down to my original weight, and I'm OK with that--After all, 8 pounds 2 oz. is just not realistic.

Saria- hothouse my a$$! I've seen rhubarb growing wild around here!


I like tart and therefore don't use much sugar. Last time I used it I was at a friend's organic farm and their strawberries were amazing. The rhubarb we used was frozen, so thawed and heated with strawberries mixed in then some chocolate pieces to bake - barely added any sugar.

I see a rhubarb custard pie in my future. SO has rhubarb connections. The recipe is his mom's. I make kickass crust. We're all set. :P
Springy, the feeling's mutual.

Seriously, this rhubarb raid would be glorious. Costumes, and a getaway car! "Drive, drive!" And of course there would be a code.

NetG, a lot of California rhubarb is hothouse grown. Rhubarb loves cold weather.

I also don't think the amount of sugar in rhubarb desserts is especially alarming. It's no more than what I'd use in a lot of other fruit desserts. But even if it is a fair amount, it's a vegetable that contains a lot of water, whereas other fruit has a lot more naturally occurring sugar.

yesterday i got the supplies to make a small frame for a fabric-draped pergola over my patio (it's only 8 by 10 feet). the clematis, roses, peonies and honeysuckle are about to bloom.

don't raid... come to visit!

It sounds like we all need to plan our next vacation at Rou's bed and breakfast.

Yay, sounds great, rou!

I'm going to have to succumb to rhubarb sooner or later. Everyone is experiencing rhubarb mania: jams, iced tea, buckles, and what's really calling out to me right now: rhubarb and raspberry galette/crostata. I don't think I can hold out any longer!
if youre planning that raid make sure you guys do it before monday when she starts her new job
Okay I didn't read this whole thread so it may have already been answered....

I've never had rhubard, what does it taste like? Or what would it be similar to? With all the recipes listed, I'm guessing it's somewhat sweet? Is it a fruit, vegetable, root plant? I'm clueless.

I've recently switched to eating more "paleo" so I'm interested in trying new vegetables and fruits so I might add this to the list (parsnips are on there too).
cowash: Tresemme Naturals
rinse out: Garnier Triple Nutrition
Leave in: Suave naturals, whichever scent I'm into at the moment
gel: Garnier Fructis or LA Looks

Rhubarb is a vegetable. It's very, very tart. It's eaten mostly like a fruit, but it can be used in savory dishes as well. It's got what could be a called a slightly medicinal taste, but in a good way! It's very refreshing and juicy. It can be red or green, though the red is much more visually appealing. It is long stalks that look a little like celery. They can be red and green or all red.
I always go for the more red stalks. I think another pie or maybe those wonderful muffins are in my weekend.
