Old Fashioned Rhubarb Recipes

Recipes with Rhubarb, Forgotten Treasure from the Garden

Is there a rhubarb plant, untended, unloved and uneaten in the bottom of your garden? Have you seen bunches of rhubarb for sale and wondered what to do with them?

Lots of people associate rhubarb with pies but there's a lot more to rhubarb than a pastry crust..

Rhubarb is an exciting sauce over chicken or seafood, gives spice to pancakes, zing to muffins and tart sweetness to a crepe. As jam it spreads on scones, as juice it gives a boost to white rum, and it's a heavenly sauce on ice cream.

And a garden just isn't a garden without a big clump of rhubarb.

Rhubarb Ice Cream Sundae

First cook your rhubarb!

What you need

25g - 1oz butter

25g - 1oz caster sugar

1 lime, zest and juice only

75g - 2¾oz cooked rhubarb, finely chopped

1 tsp chopped fresh mint

3 large scoops vanilla ice cream

50g - 1¾oz sultanas

50g - 1¾oz almonds, chopped

What you do

Melt the butter and sugar together with the lime juice and zest. Tip in the rhubarb and cook for three minutes. It should be soft and warm by then. Add the chopped mint and set aside to cool.

Spoon a scoop of the ice cream into the base of a tall glass. Sprinkle over a third of the sultanas and nuts, and a third of the cooled rhubarb. Repeat the layering until all ingredients are used up. Stick in a mint sprig and serve straightaway.

Peach and Rhubarb Dessert

My elderly neighbour gave me this recipe, basically a Crumble made with oats.

She suggested I could use tinned peaches if I had no fresh fruit, but I haven't seen a tin of peaches in a long time. They tend to be all exported these days.

Her recipe also contained real oats, not the pre-cooked kind, and directed that they be soaked overnight. So I've made a slight adjustment to the oats in the recipe here.

Serve this dish warm with vanilla ice cream.

Peach and Rhubarb Dessert Recipe

  • About 500g sliced peaches
  • About 500g sliced rhubarb
  • 1 1/2 cups fine sugar
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 1/4 cups self-raising flour
  • 1/3 cup uncooked quick-cooking oats
  • 1/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup cold butter
  • cut into small pieces

Instructions

  1. 1. Combine fruit, sugar and lemon juice in a medium bowl; add 1/4 cup flour, stirring well. Pour mixture into a 13- x-9-inch baking dish coated with a light cooking spray.
  2. 2. Combine oats, brown sugar, and remaining 1 cup flour in a small bowl; cut in cold butter with a fork or pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle mixture evenly over fruit filling.
  3. 3. Bake at 375° for 45 to 50 minutes or until bubbly.
  4. She says to serve this dish warm with vanilla ice cream.

One day, I thought I had found a piece of rhubarb and bit into it. Yuk!!! It was NOT rhubarb. I have no idea what it was. I don't think I've tried to stick another piece in my mouth since that day. I would like to try making a pie for my husband. He has never had one.

I do think it's a lovely ornamental plant, but I'm sure we will eat some when it's ready. I think I have to wait two years for the first real harvest.

It's been 25 years since I've eaten it. I haven't seen it in stores in CA but then again, I haven't been looking. I'm going to make it a point to go to "Whole Foods" and check.

      I planted Rhubarb in my garden last year in honor of my Great-Grandmother. She had it planted in her yard and I would help her pick it and then she would let me help in the kitchen to make fruit crisps. Rhubarb was the base but she would throw in what ever else was in season. I picked the first stalks 2 weeks ago and made a crisp with a mix of rhubarb, apples and dried cranberries. I am in love and my plants are doing great, can't wait till summer when the fruit trees start producing.

      Congrats on making LOTD! You definitely deserve it. And speaking of rhubard, we used to grow and sell it at a farmer's market in Connecticut, and many of our customers would ask, "What do you DO with rhubarb, anyway? Just make pies?" So we started making things with it and bringing samples for tasting, along with recipes. We even made up our own concoction of "rhubarb ade" (like lemonade but ... you guessed it! With rhubarb instead of lemons). Soon afterwards, we started selling out of rhubarb within ten minutes of the market opening each Saturday.

      Rhubarb! Such fun. Memories of Grandma and sitting on the back porch with a shaker of salt. Don't report me to the Heart & Stroke people. Grandma wasn't a pie maker though. Her rhubarb went into sauce...on ice cream. Yummy! Alas, my rhubarb is in two neighbors yard as my last little nub couldn't withstand the fence building. Not to fear. This year I'll get some back and start anew.

      Ok, now my mouth is watering for some yummy pie (NO strawberries please), or a rhubarb sundae, or cobbler, etc. I'll have to wait for months for our own backyard crop! I'll pass on your sw-e-e-e-t recipes to my sis in law, the real pastry cook around here. ;-) 5* on a neat lens!

      What a great lens. I've never tried rhubarb. Mainly because I didn't know how to fix it. Well, I do now and am anxious to try some of you delicious-sounding recipes. 5 stars, favorite and I'm a FAN! Bear hugs, Frankster aka Bearmeister

      Stopped by to congratulate you on LOTD for Rhubarb -- Yes, I too LOVE Rhubarb -- but see that I already was here: "Ah, we have something in common -- it's red and sometimes tart -- oh, it's rhubarb! Yep, I too have a lens on how much I love Rhubarb -- as does my buddy Cheryl -- she's done some pies. Great to find another rhubarb lover. 5***** Hey, we can call ourselves the Rhubarb Gals!

      Kudos on LOTD! I'm a rhubarb purist. It must be just rhubarb and NO strawberries!
