Rhubarb Galore

My Aunt Nancy lives on a large-ish piece of property in Washington state. She'll write emails with neat things like, "A baby horse was born in the barn this morning." It's kind of exciting. She grows things on her land, too. Like rhubarb. LOTS of rhubarb. I got a package in the mail and it had about 10 or 15 pounds of rhubarb in it. What do you do with all that rhubarb? Well, this is what I did with mine.
- washed and chopped into whatever size piece I wanted.
- found 5 great recipes here, here, here, here and here
- bagged the rhubarb and sugar needed for each recipe, plus the recipe itself which I put into a smaller zip type bag to protect it from the rhubarb juices.
- now they're in the freezer ready for any time I feel like eating rhubarb for dessert.

- made one for dessert tonight.

I've never been a big fan of rhubarb, so I don't know what I would do with all that rhubarb myself! But it is a blessing to get homegrown produce in the mail!

I haven't ever tried it I have to admit, but never having tried it I really wouldn't know what to do with it.
