Recipes, Rhubarb

Rhubarb and Rhubarb Stew

Mama, can we pick the rhubarb, can we pick the rhubarb? Please, it looks ready, come see!

A five year old refrain, he loves to pick it, cut it and cook it into Rhubarb Stew.

This is a rough family recipe that we have been making for years.

Chop a good sized handful of rhubarb into bite size pieces, place in pot with a small amount of water, cover and bring to boil. Rhubarb will be breaking apart at this point.

Delicious!

We like to add cinnamon and ginger to ours, just a tich and maple syrup to taste.

You could also use sugar or any other sweetner you prefer. Rhubarb is definitely tart, so you will want some kind of sweetener.

Serve this warm over ice cream or with cream for a delicious treat!

When preparing rhubarb, remember that the roots and leaves are poisonous. Only the stem is edible.
