For something simple, I cut a couple of stalks up boil it in a few Tablespoons of water add a little sugar and cook until soft. I then put it on my oatmeal in the morning and if not sweet enough I put some honey in it. Sometimes I even put walnuts or pecans in it.

I am addicted to rhubarb custard pie, and I freeze several quarts each year from a local u-pick place for just that purpose. In fact, I think I'll go make one now...

I love rhubarb pie, without any other fruit added; a fond memory from childhood.

Used to feel guilty about the pie part, but, if you eat it as jam (on bread, muffin, biscuit or bagel) or in a muffin, then there are also carbs that way, so I don't feel guilty anymore.

Crisps are my favorite when I'm watching carbs; the oatmeal in the crisp is a whole grain, and low glycemic if you use Old Fashioned oats instead of quick, instant, etc. Sweets need all the help they can get in the carb, glycemic index, & fiber depts. Old fashioned otmeal used in crisps, helps in all 3.

You can also reduce the sugar by half (or more) and add stevia instead.

Brown rice syrup is composed of about 50% complex carbohydrates, which break down more slowly in the bloodstream than simple carbohydrates, resulting in a less dramatic spike in blood glucose levels. It has the tendency to make food harder and crispier, so it’s great in crisps, granolas, and cookies. To replace one cup of sugar, use 1-1/3 cups brown rice syrup, and for each cup of rice syrup added, reduce liquid by 1/4 cup and add 1/4 teaspoon baking soda.

Rhubarb is good cooked down as an icecream topping as well, as compote or if your jelly doesn't set up.

Baked rhubarb has anti-cancer properties. There was a SparkArticle about it I can't find:

Lucky You ! ! ! Heading into Summer. We are heading into winter...UGH emoticon

I have made Rhubarb Tea that is very good. Just cut up pieces of the stalk and smach them. Then steep in hot water and Enjoy. Can add ginger or cinnamon.
I, also, boil and puree my rhubarb and add it to non yeast bread recipes.

Every day when fully lived- is a grand succession of experiences both pleasant and unpleasant - for life is made up of both- and without the one the other would not be recognized or appreciated.

I would much rather have regrets about not doing what people said, than regretting what my heart led me to and wondering what life had been like if I had just been myself.
