Rhubarb!

Rhubarb on the stove

Tonight I cooked up a little rhubarb sauce for Tanny and I. Delicious! My Mom used to make it for us when I was a kid and I haven’t eaten it for a long time. I called her up for the "recipe". Based on what I made tonight, here it is:

  • five stalks rhubarb, chopped
  • 3 tbsp sugar

Heat the rhubarb in a saucepan on low heat with a tiny bit of water. Stir as the rhubarb cooks until the rhubarb gets to a stringy, saucy consistency (see picture). Stir in sugar. That’s it.

We eat it on toast.

Tanny made rhubarb-apple muffins with our first load of rhubarb and they were also excellent. Anyone have a good strawberry-rhubarb pie recipe they’d like to share?

I use Mark Bittman’s Strawberry-Rhubarb Pie recipe (from How to Cook Everything).

About 5 cups of fruit, up to a cup of sugar (a cup if your fruit is mostly rhubarb) a quarter-tsp of nutmeg or ginger, and three tablespoons of cornstarch.

Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.

Stephanie,

Mmmm that sounds delicious! Nutmeg and rhubarb – an interesting combination. We’ll be giving that one a try for sure. Thanks for sharing!
