My wonderful neighbors have kept me supplied with the stalks and still bring over plants for me to try again. :) I received a grocery bag full of strawberry rhubarb on Sunday and yesterday I started "rhubarbing". At least that's what my daughter calls it. I made rhubarb cake, rhubarb jelly, rhubarb juice. Next up I'll make rhubarb syrup (delicious on top of homemade yogurt), and rhubarb sauce.
The rhubarb juice is great mixed with ginger ale, and I've found that rhubarb jelly is now my favorite. Here's the simple recipe for the jelly:
6 cups rhubarb juice
1 pkg. pectin
1/2 tsp. butter
7 cups of sugar
Just follow the directions in the pectin package. It's delicious. Sweet and tart.

I'm going to try planting and growing rhubarb again. I mean, who can't grow rhubarb???With such wonderful neighbors, I guess I really don't have to worry about it.
