AE-MEYERS, I just found out that Native Forest claims to use Bpa-free cans. Thai Kitchen does not claim Bpa-free cans. I will buy Native Forest brand from now on or make my own. I just got a 5 lb bag of shredded coconut so I could do just that!

Aniduckthistle - that rhubarb pudding was awesome!!! I finally tried it. So easy, and so, SO good. Thanks so much for sharing. I'll be eating this until I run out of rhubarb this season. Now I really have to make sure I pick up any late harvests and freeze it!

Thanks ladies. I have one more store to try. I bought some Thai Kitchen milk. Oh, and a thing of coconut water. Come to think of it, I bet some of the ethnic stores in my area would have some of these products.

Native Forest and Thai Kitchen both offer the thick kind of coconut milk. I scoop out the top thick part and put it in a small-ish mixing bowl adding just a little of the bottom liquid part at a time to make a very smooth, thick coconut milk. If I just use the top part I can whip it up into a wonderful coconut cream. The bottom part is mostly thick-ish water that has been pressed through the coconut pulp to make the "milk". It is very tasty even by itself but I usually just whisk it back into the "cream". After I whisk it all together I store it in the fridge in a covered glass container where it is handy for anything I want (which is a lot of the time!).

These coconut milks can sometimes be found in the ethnic section of the grocery store.

coconutsecret.com/products2.html I find these at my local Wegmans store they are east coast though. I also use I think Native Forest organic coconut milk in a can that is in the organic section. It is full fat not lite. You have to mix it up after opening it separates, I did not know this when I first bought it. Coconut cream I have only seen once at the helthfood store and I can't remember the brand. It was with the oils.

Ok, silly questions. I went to Whole Foods today and they didn't know anything about coconut cream or coconut nectar. So, where might I find them? And can you give me a brand name for a thick coconut milk? In looking around the stores in my area so far, I seem to find just the typical canned, very liquid variety. I will do an internet search as well, but would appreciate any help you guys can give me.

I like really tart rhubarb so I drizzle it (about 2-3 c. cut up) with orange juice and about half a teaspoon of liquid honey and bake for 45 minutes at 350F. Great with plain yogurt or coconut cream.

Sorry, I spelled it different; it's commonly spelled "kuzu". You can get it at health food stores or even in the ethnic section of many grocery stores. It works like cornstarch but is not a grain; it's from the root of a kuzu plant.

This is what I am talking about:

What is kudzu powder and where would I find it? The recipe sounds yummy. I'll have to find me some coconut nectar.

A couple days ago I was chopping up the rhubarb that I just got from the co-op putting it in freezer bags a half a pound at a time when I ended up with a small handful leftover. I put them in a little pan with some water and a teaspoon or so of coconut nectar, a sprinkling of cinnamon and a little bit of kudzu powder that I had dissolved in water. In half a minute it was cooked and was a beautiful pudding. I plopped a glop of coconut milk (the thick kind) on top of it and it was incredible! Very, very yummy. When my strawberries are ready I will do this again using half strawberries and maybe reducing the coconut syrup...maybe...just a thought. I'm always playing with food!

So many rhubarb recipes are full of sugar and most often require a crust of some kind. I'm thinking that I might try a rhubarb crisp using a grain-free topping...maybe get some ideas for that from my grain-free granola recipes...NOW I'm thinking!!

Thanks for that link Purrballs, I just found this from it that really stood out because it doesn't have sugar. Most recipes for rhubarb have sugar...for GOOD reason! But this looks very interesting; thought I'd just post it.

Rhubarb Pepper Salmon

•12 oz salmon (preferably wild) - cubed
•16 oz broccoli – cut up
•16 oz zucchini - sliced
•2 Cups sliced mushrooms
•1 Cup diced leeks or scallions
•2 Tbl olive oil
•1 Cup Cabernet or red zin
•½ Cup diced rhubarb (fresh in Feb!)
•½ tsp ground pepper
•2 Cups strawberries - desert- but I munch them with the meal.. ;-)

•Prepare all the ingredients. The zucchini goes in a steamer by itself. Get that going.
•Next, get the Cabernet, rhubarb, and pepper simmering in a pan. We’ll let this reduce to about ½ original volume. Enjoy the smell!! Don’t let the rhubarb get mushy.

•At the same time, saute the leeks and mushrooms for a bout 5 minutes then add salmon, mix a little, then add broccoli on top and cover. Cook on high another ~ 10 minutes or until broc and salmon is done. Mix occasionally.

•Put rhubarb reduction over salmon/broc. Add zucchini on the side, throw on some fresh ground pepper - chow! Munch the berries with dinner or keep them for desert (or snag some of that left-over wine depending on how strict you are feeling!)

I'm new to the Paleo Diet and haven't finished the book yet. I haven't seen rhubarb listed either way - is this veggie paleo-friendly? I'm looking for some ways to cook it besides making pies, muffins, crisps, etc. I'm especially looking for more savory recipes. I've heard rhubarb can be stewed, but haven't found a recipe yet. Any tips would be greatly appreciated.
