In-Season Recipe Swap: Rhubarb
My mom (whose garden is pictured above!) has a huge rhubarb patch. We've been blessed with fresh rhubarb from her in years past, making pies and sauce.
Rhubarb sauce, similar to apple sauce, is a delicious way to use lots of rhubarb! Cut rhubarb into thin slices -- to avoid strings -- and cook in a little water until tender. Stir in some sugar and enjoy! Rhubarb sauce can be frozen as well.
Today, however, we had a tasty Blueberry-Rhubarb Crisp!
I was trying to think of a new way to prepare rhubarb, and decided to try pairing it with blueberries. The result was a beautiful and delicious fruit crisp!
The fruit in the bowl was so pretty!
The Blueberry-Rhubarb Crisp is very simple to make. I think it took Eliyahu (3) and me about 20 minutes from start to finish! If you're picking your own blueberries you'll need to add some time for that though. ;)
Rhubarb seems to be one of those fruits (or is it a vegetable?) that can be paired with almost anything, actually.
One of the first recipes we put on this website was this Classic Strawberry Rhubarb Pie. Oh, so yummy!! Strawberry Rhubarb Cream Pie is just as good, but I haven't made it recently, so the photos are not as appetizing as they could be. ;) Same goes for the Cherry Rhubarb Dessert. I remember how excited I was about how "great" those photos had turned out! Oh, my. The things I've learned in 3 years' time!
Okay, I'm ready to check out your favorite recipes that feature rhubarb as a main ingredient! :)
