I usually get rhubarb and chop it up and freeze it in zipper bags. That way I can use whatever a recipe needs, and put the rest back.
Last year, I begged from the neighbours, who had plenty growing - and seemed to not even be using it. So, I ended up with lots in the freezer.
My usual way of preparing it:
1-2 c rhubarb 1 c rinsed quinoa 1 grated/shredded in food processor lemon 1 grated/shredded apple
apple or pumpkin pie type spice (either my own mix or pre-mixed)
If you wish, a little natural sweetener.
Cook together; Divide in serving sizes (makes about eight). Freeze and thaw in fridge, reheating for breakfast or snack to have with or without topping such as yogurt, a little milk (regular or non-dairy), or plain.
Relatives make other things. I don't often do the pickles and things they would, but have shared my bounty so they can do as they wish.

Thanks for the Rhubarb recipes, have always loved this tart sweet plant.

I tried rhubarb for the first time last year and loved it. Now it is in season and I want to make some myself but am clueless on how much to buy. I can buy each stalk individually. How much is in an average stalk? As I have never used rhubarb in anything before I am searching for good recipes. If there are any recommendations please let me know. Thanks!
