Rhubarb Ready: A Round-up of Rhubarb Recipes

by autumn on May 6, 2013


This weekend, I bought my first greenmarket rhubarb of the season. I bagged just over a pound of pip-squeak little stalks that were piled in a foil roasting pan and shoved next to some kale. The lady who came after me said something about not wanting to be greedy and after the lady who came after her, it was gone. This, my friends, is the most wonderful time of the year. Here are some recipes, so you’re ready.

What’s on your rhubarb to-do list this year?

Rhubarb Almond Breakfast Cakes from The Year in Food

Rhubarb Fool from The First Mess

Pink Peppercorn Rhubarb and Berry Cake from Canelle et Vanille

Rhubarbaritas from Local Kitchen

Rhubarb Lime Granita from Apt 2B Baking Co

And some of my favorites…

Rhubarb Shrub + 3 drinks from Serious Eats

Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp

Milk & Honey Pudding with Stewed Rhubarb

Rhubarb White Wine Sorbet (forgive the pics, this one is an oldie, but goodie)

Rhubarb Jelly

Mine is slowly growing…but this week is supposed to be hot and it should take off. I can’t wait to get cooking and baking!

Thanks, Yossy. I bookmarked your recipe last spring I think and never got around to making it. It’s definitely on this year.

I’ve been loving your recipe for Rhubarb Shrub – I definitely prefer it to a regular rhubarb syrup. In addition to shrub and lots of rhubarb pies, I’ve been making rhubarb and meyer lemon jam and rhubarb tea bread.

Yeah! I am so happy to hear that you’ve been enjoying the shrub. And 3 cheers for an all rhubarb pie.
