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.

Really Easy and Really Impressive

Talk about a big Wow Factor. I’m not kidding you at all when I say this version of a strawberry shortcake is super easy to make.  The recipe is simple enough to have on any occasion.  But it’s beautiful enough to serve for any special occasion also.  This cake has been my contribution to wedding showers, baby showers, Canada Day celebrations, Father’s Day Celebrations, and even Tuesdays.   You can make your own Angel Food Cake or start with a store bought variety – entirely up to you!

Choose fresh strawberries and sliced in half, or whole berries with the stems removed for the garnish up top and you have an amazing dessert sure to impress your guests, and satisfy your sweet , but not too sweet, tooth.

Careful not to mix the berries too much, or you’re lush white cream will become pink – which actually isn’t a bad thing either – especially for a bridal shower!

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.

Quick, easy, nutritious and of course super tasty.  That is why this is my Favourite Summer Salad Recipe.

Whether you are going to grow your own ingredients for this, or grab them from your local supermarket or grocery store, this salad really is the perfect summer salad.  The strawberries provide a wonderful texture, the baby spinach leaves are incredibly tasty, and if fresh, quite crisp – and the orange or mandarin segments add not only a sweet flavour, but also the dressing.
