Rhubarb is the first thing we harvest from our garden in the spring. The plants seem to start poking out of the ground while there is still snow on the ground. Before you know it the plants are huge and ready to be harvested! We have five large plants in the garden, which is more than I need. One year I even bartered for bread!

As you might guess we do enjoy rhubarb. Here are my favorite ways to use it!

Rhubarbeque Sauce. This is a family favorite that I make every year. It is wonderful on grilled meats especially pork and chicken.

Rhubarb Jam – this jam is equally good on chicken or on a piece of toast for breakfast!Rhubarb Jam

Rhubarb Buckle The ginger in this recipe gives this buckle a unique taste.

Rhubarb, Date and Apricot Chutney – The dates and apricots give a rich favor to the sweet sour taste of the rhubarb.

If your life is crazy busy like mine is sometimes rhubarb can also be easily frozen to use a at a later date. Just cut the stalks into small pieces. Place in a Ziploc bag or use your FoodSaver. And freeze. Couldn’t be easier!
