A Website and Blog Devoted Only and Entirely to Everything Rhubarb!
If you grow rhubarb, also known as "the pie plant", (or rheum-rhaponticum, to be botanically correct), and you are looking for easy recipes (with photos!) to make with your rhubarb, you have found the best collection of recipes here!
I don't understand why more people do not grow this very versatile vegetable!
Baked into muffins, snacks, breads, cakes, cheesecakes, cookies, bars and squares, crisps, crumbles, cobblers, or any dessert recipe, with its sweet/tart flavour, it is a most delectable vegetable!
Rhubarb can also be used to create mouth watering ice cream, sorbet, or puddings for that unique, and "different" dessert that you are always on the "look-out" for!
Awesome jams and jellies created with "the pie plant" alone, or combined with strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, or any other fruit combinations create some of the best preserves of the season!
Rhubarb is commonly paired with strawberries or raspberries in recipes. They combine together to create the best of a sweet/tart flavour.
Since they are usually harvested at around the same time, recipes with berries and rhubarb together are great choices!
If your rhubarb is not as red in colour as you desire, pairing it with berries is a good idea to bring out the deep red hue.
Healthy vegetable juice or drinks, including punch, slushes, smoothies, cocktails, and more, are amazing homemade beverages that can be created using the pie plant.
This plant belongs in everyone's backyard!
Because it is technically a vegetable, but most often treated as a fruit, it is versatile enough to be used at any meal!
In fact, included in this recipe collection for the pie plant, are ideas for suppers, including, beef, chicken, pork, and fish dinner recipes.
Rhubarb is a perennial plant, therefore, once you have planted one plant, it will continue to come up every year, and provide you with a large harvest about three times a season.
What an amazing vegetable to have in your garden!
A great way to save on food purchases too!
I believe rhubarb is the easiest vegetable to grow, and the most frugal plant to grow in your garden.
No need to purchase seeds or plants each Spring. This vegetable will come up in your garden each Spring, and it is self-propagating, so your harvest will increase every year!
This choice of vegetable requires very little maintenance and is rarely bothered by pests or disease.
I have grown the pie plant for many years, and each time it is ready to harvest, I use as much fresh stalks as I need to make cakes, muffins, bread, etc., and then I freeze the rest.
Since our family loves the pie plant, and we grow a lot of this vegetable, I have always collected rhubarb recipes. I have now accumulated a very large collection, (100's of fabulous recipes), to share with you on this website and blog.
Each time I make one of these recipes, I am taking photos, to accompany the recipe. I know how much easier to follow a recipe with pictures to go alongside the recipe instructions!
Do you grow this amazing vegetable?
If you do not, you really should consider doing so. Honesty, this is the easiest vegetable to grow! It really does "grow like a weed", requiring very little effort. In fact, you do not need to own an actual "vegetable garden" to grow your this vegetable.
You can very easily grow these plants along a fence line, or along your patio or beside a deck. Any size property can accommodate the pie plant!
This produce is a food with high nutritional value.
It is rich in vitamin C, in fibre, and also contains significant amounts of calcium, vitamin K and potassium and it has been used for medicinal uses for centuries.
Rhubarb is one of the most commonly used herbs in Chinese Medicine. Of all the many herbs cultivated for medicinal uses in early civilizations, Chinese Rhubarb remains one of the few which is still used today.
