Reasons to love Rhubarb

Rhubarb has a taste that is quite unique. It is perfect for muffins, breads and cakes, as it is not too sweet.  You will find that a lot of recipes using rhubarb also add strawberries.  They go quite well together!

Besides these amazing rhubarb recipes, Rhubarb is a hardy, perennial vegetable, that requires very little care and maintenance.  Try to cut it before it goes to seed, and don’t cut the really small pieces when you do harvest. 

Even in the Northern Ontario climates, you can get at least two, and often three harvests per year.  That is usually enough to stock a freezer. Rhubarb freezes well, it also cans well.  You can mix it with sugar and can it, and use it later on in crumbles, crisps and my favourite cobbler recipe.

Rhubarb Mini Muffins

Rhubarb is one of the easiest vegetables to grow ever.  It made my list of 7 Easy to grow Veggies, and I told you a little bit about caring for the plant during Rhubarb Season.

What I may not have mentioned yet, is that you can quite a lot of rhubarb from one plant, and with rhubarb a little goes a long way.  You can freeze rhubarb to keep it for baking through the winter, and you can also can it it many ways; as a syrup, a jam, and a sauce.  

These tasty sweet little muffins are a favourite here, and the the crumbly sugary top is tasty enough for a light dessert, and satisfying enough for a great snack.  They are also wonderful with coffee at breakfast.  And you’re wondering about that problem I mentioned earlier?  Well, I eat them like potato chips.

Rhuberry Jam – Smooth Strawberry Rhubarb Jam

Homemade Rhuberry Jam Preserved rhubarb and strawberries together in this deliciously sweet homemade jam

Some things just go really well together.  Peanut butter and Chocolate, Popcorn and Movies, Beer and Barbecues, and Strawberry and Rhubarb have also proven to be a mouth watering combination as well.

Rhuberry Jam

Let’s be clear.  I have a firm belief that sugar belongs in jam, and fat belongs in yogurt. This recipe uses liquid pectin and lots of sugar.  I like it that way and with all things of indulgence, moderation is key. 

And yep – you guessed it, the name Rhuberry Jam comes from the combination of rhubarb, strawberries, three small children, and one frazzled mama.  What can I say?  Sometimes my word box malfunctions, and sometimes the results stick.

Smooth Strawberry Rhubarb Jam

I have always been a fan of the super sweet Strawberry Jam, but I shun the strawberry lumps.  Just ugh.  What makes this jam my new favourite is the addition of the tart rhubarb, and the pureed strawberries.  That’s right.  I pureed the strawberries.  I can hear the shock and horror.  Jam connoisseurs world wide would be appalled that I didn’t leave those delicious fruit chunks alone.  Well, that’s why this is my recipe and my website.

Garden Fresh Rhubarb and Strawberry Pie

We have been enjoying the healthy harvest of rhubarb for many seasons now. It is one of the few vegetables we can get multiple crops off of in one growing season, and that alone is pretty awesome.

Well sell it bundled, and we also preserve it and freeze it.  You can make a lovely sauce with it, it is great in a cobbler, makes a wonderful jam, and what we like most of all, is this sweet and tart pie.  Not too sweet, and not too tart.  The perfect mix of both, I’d say.

Fresh versus Frozen Ingredients

I don’t think there can be any argument that fresh is better.  That being said, there are plenty of times when frozen is just as good.  If you’re in a climate where you can’t get access to fresh fruit and veggies all year round, it is totally acceptable to use frozen and canned varieties.  

Be mindful however, frozen strawberries will change the texture of this pie, so you’re best to grab a pint or so from the grocer
