First rhubarb harvest of the year
Topic: rhubarb

First rhubarb harvest of the year.  Same day as last year!  I could have taken some a few days earlier, but I was waiting for an excuse to make fresh rhubarb crisp, and the visit of a friend made this the day.  Sweet crisp fresh rhubarb!

This plant laughs at a late spring. 

I still had rhubarb in the freezer from last year.  Although it doesn't lose much in the freezer, it does lose a little something.  So I made a big batch of rhubarb chutney.  I thawed it first and drained the juice before adding the vinegar.  It made for a great batch of chutney.

First rhubarb harvest of the year
Topic: rhubarb

A friend brought a bag of fresh rhubarb from her Matanuska Valley acreage today. I chopped and froze most of the stalks, supplementing it with some of my rhubarb to make three full 8-cup bags, and also baked a fresh rhubarb crisp.

My rhubarb plants are now shaded by a birch tree that keep gettting taller every year (imagine that!) so today she and I moved some from the shade to a new spot in full sun. No harvesting of those particular plants this year, but I have plenty of others.Ads by AdGenta.com
