Using Rhubarb

I'd like to know about other uses of rhubarb, so far I can only use to cook with strawberry and sugar to eat. Is there some recipe with salt for good use of my rhubarb plants ?

MAKES:12 (6 OZ/175 mL) SERVINGS COMMENTS:Made several times over summer and is very tasty. I have also frozen the concentrate successfully and added pop after thawing just before seerving. Also good with just water as a mix. Excellant way to use up a lot of rhubarb.

Note: All starred ingredients may have to be purchased to make this recipe.

4 c. diced rhubarb, fresh or frozen 1 L

3/4 c. sugar or sweetener** 175 mL

3 c. water(or less, if rhubarb is frozen) 750 mL

2/3 c. unsweetened orange juice 150 mL

1(28 oz) regular or diet gingerale* 875 mL

2 tbsp lemon juice 30 mL


 In medium saucepan, combine diced rhubarb, sugar and water.

 Stir to blend and cook over medium heat until fruit is very soft, about 15 minutes.

 Remove from heat; press through a sieve.

 Add to fruit juices. Cover and chill.

 TO SERVE: Pour 1/2 c/125 mL rhubarb concentrate over ice cubes in tall glass, fill with ginger ale, and stir. Try sparkling mineral water or lemon-lime pop too.

**IF USING SWEETENER INSTEAD OF SUGAR: Cook rhubarb and water; sieve, add fruit juices and sweetener after the mixture has cooled to room temperature.

Rhubarb Pie or stewed Rhubarb, it's all good. The way I fix it is easy, not like my moms from scratch. I take pie pastry in a box. Peel and chop up the rhubarb put it in the pie shell heaping high add 1/4 cup sugar then put lid on put 2 slits bake at 350 till brown sprinkle sugar on top serve with ice cream or custard. For the stewed you just peel and chop it put in a pan with 1/4 sugar and simmer till cooked serve the same way with ice cream or custard.

Check out this recipe - it's pork with a rhubarb chutney. Easy to replace the pork with chicken and not change anything for a great meal.
