Northern gardeners who have rhubarb growing in their gardens are likely picking it already or just about to. Plants should be tall with healthy thick stalks along with many smaller stalks.
Pick those big fat ones first and let the others grow for awhile longer. And remember…
Always leave some small stalks on your plant. If you want your rhubarb to keep growing, do not pick it clean.
That bit of top growth will keep your plant sending up stalks. Here’s everything you need to know about growing rhubarb.
Graham loves to bake a Rhubarb pie.
We like mixing the rhubarb with another type of fruit – either raspberries, blueberries or saskatoon berries.
Make a batch of Homemade Rhubarb Wine. It’s quite delicious and is wonderful with light summer meals.
Since we freeze ours before turning it into wine, I don’t go to the trouble of dicing the rhubarb. Bigger chunks works just fine.
I bag them up and just toss them in the freezer until we are ready to deal with it.
For using in pies or other baking, I dice the rhubarb quite small. Since a pie needs 3 lbs of fruit, I just bag them up in 1 or 2 lb batches.
It makes it easy to make a two fruit pie or a four fruit pie!
