Rhubarb ~ How I love thee!

Rhubarb, prolific, abundant,

rhubarb plant

 

 

You can use Rhubarb in all kinds of yummy desserts ~ we make a lovely muffin with struesal..

You can make a beautiful sauce.  It is super easy and delicious over homemade ice cream!  This is a delicious and easy way  to preserve your rhubarb!

  • 4 cups chopped rhubarb
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • In a sauce pan, add rhubarb, sugar, and water. Bring to boil over medium heat, stirring frequently. Reduce to a simmer. Simmer until rhubarb is soft and  thicker ( 10ish minutes), stirring occasionally
  • When it’s done ~ whatever you don’t use can be easily canned,  fill clean and sterilized pint jars and cover.  Water bath (boil) for 15 minutes!   I love canning rhubarb because it is usually the first start to the canning season!

Lastly ~ this is not a healthy recipe but we love to use jam or jelly in our Kombucha and this is one of our favorites!

  • Take 5 cups of cut rhubarb, cover with 3 cups of sugar ~ let sit overnight
  • cook for 15 minutes
  • add one package of strawberry instant jello
  • fill sterilized pint jars
  • waterbath 🙂

Each batch  makes 2 pints,  today ~ we did 6 batches!    This is also delicious over ice cream 🙂  13128922_1015337331836801_1578800990_o
