Cleaning Rhubarb

Before cooking rhubarb there are a few steps you will need to take to clean and prepare it. This is a guide about cleaning rhubarb.


We made a batch of strawberry rhubarb jam. I washed it and cut off the ends. When I cut it in small pieces to cook, the red outside pulled off into strings. I went ahead and pulled the rest of it off. Should I have left it on? I haven't been able to find the answer to this.

Could you have put it through a blender to puree the strings before making the jam? I once made strawberry jam this way, and received so many compliments on it. It turned out to be a fruit spread that tasted wonderful.
