5 Pounds of Rhubarb!

20120428-143940.jpg

Today I bought 5 pounds of rhubarb at the farmers’ market. I can’t begin to tell you how excited I am to start cooking things featuring this fabulous spring vegetable. That’s right it’s a vegetable!

I have a few ideas tickling my brain but I thought it would be fun to poll the people.

Dearest Readers, what would you make with this rhubarb?

  1. You know me sis, I am a rhubarb traditionalist and would love your take on our family classic Strawberry Rhubarb pie.

  2. I don’t have any suggestions, but would love to be your taste tester. In case you need an unbiased opinion or anything. BTW, we have met at Mary Ellen’s BD party. And I’m just kidding about the taste tester part. Kind of anyway. I know you will share your recipes. Elaine

  3. Combine with blueberries for “bluebarb” pie… or for a lighter take you couldmake bluebarb sauce and serve it on angelfood cake. When I was a kid I used to love to eat rhubarb raw, dipped in a little sugar. Makes me pucker to think about it now!

  4. Well, I would make a rhubarb custard pie, and leave off the bottom crust. Then I might try an apple cake recipe using the rhubarb instead.

  5. I think mixing the two spring vegetables, asparagus and rhubarb, would be great. Make a rhubarb sauce that has vinegar in it and lightly dress the asparagas.

  6. Because I’m watching sugar intake, I’d chop and toss into a hearty muffin or bread pudding. It would also be fun to make a tart strawberry rhubarb sauce for topping pancakes or waffles. Have fun
