So it may well be the wrong time of year to post this since your rhubarb harvest will be far from your thoughts. But hey, let’s pretend I’m being really organised for next Spring when your rhubarb crown will be re-birthing after winter and at it’s finest! If you find yourself wondering what to do with the ton of rhubarb I hope you’ll end up with here are a few suggestions from the archives (sigh, from the good old days of having an abundant harvest from the allotment!)
This post has spent 5 years in drafts waiting to be finished! The first three suggestions are my own nipitinthebud makes but growing small boys stalled any efforts to complete the post with some delicious rhubarb bakes. So having been inspired by my husbands musical collaborations this month I decided to ask my friend Choclette at Tin and Thyme if I could feature some of her terrific rhubarb recipes. I knew she’d come up trumps and if these ideas have whet your appetite be sure to check out her archives – she has enough suggestions for a ”10 ways with a ton of rhubarb” post! Enjoy x
2018 update – fellow allotment blogger Zoe at Zoe’s Garden Prints, who created my fab blog banner using her allotment alphabet, has produced a gorgeous illustrated recipe card for rhubarb and almond muffins that is simply too wonderful not to share. Zoe is happy for you to download and print the recipe to use in your home kitchen or you can buy the print from her Etsy shop (all items are printed with long-lasting inks onto archive quality photo paper which means it won’t fade and will look good on your kitchen wall for years).
