Rhubarb

What do you do with your rhubarb?
Ours is flourishing again this year but apart from rhubarb crumble  (I am the only one that likes it so I would have to eat it all ) I haven't tried to do anything else with it.

Just the thought of rhubarb makes me shudder

Rhubarb and Strawberry crumble....for a change. or rhubarb and strawberry jam. Rhubarb chutney....really good with various meats.

My fave though is rhubarb and strawberries done any way...it is just such a fabulous combination.

I make scones as part of cricket teas but the cricketers have a definite prefernce for strawberry jam - dare I risk rhubarb and ginger jam?

Has anyone got a foolproof recipe for rhubarb and ginger jam then?

Kaz if the cricket team like strawberry jam then do try the rhubarb and strawberry jam it is delish.

Too late Border, too late...

Fresh out of the oven fruit scones made with vanilla sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg, light, fluffy and still warm enough to melt the butter, with HM rhubarb and ginger jam

Cadburys own a huge amount of land in the Midlands where I used to live, and acres of rhubarb were grown. I was told it was used as an emulsifier for the chocolate. I think it's also used in pharmacy.
Not that I'm suggesting either uses for you Kaz - but I bet there are 101 uses for rhubarb.

I love it by the way    Mmmmmmmm rhubarb crumble with ice cream melting on top.

I've just made half a dozen jars of rhubarb and ginger jam, I was going to put some on the scones, but they seem to have disappeared
*wanders back into kitchen to make more scones*
12Bore

Sorted, more scones and rhubarb and ginger jam  
Rena

YUMMMMM!!!!!!!!!!!!

You had better bring some of that jam with you aswell mate..........I reckon rhubarb and ginger, will go well with some of the softer types of cheeses.

Not out of place with stilton types either.

Here's what came out of my first rhubarb cut.

Rhubarb and vanillia rum.



The dark bottle 2nd from left, is the last bottle from 2012.

I have just been given a recipe for shoulder of pork that involves slow roasting it in a whole bottle of white wine (I'm sure that cider will do the same job   ) then adding rhubarb for the last 30 minutes - shred the pork when cooked and serve in the sauce.

I did that with some belly pork and rhubarb jam last Sunday, it was verrrrrry nice!
