PostSubject: Rhubarb?   Sat Oct 13, 2007 8:40 pm

A while back I made a strawberry rhubarb pie. Anyways, seeing as rhubarb is nearly impossible to find in CA I had no idea how much I'd need and I bought a bunch just to be safe since it's so hard to find. I ended up having too much and eventually threw the rest out. Other than making pies, what else can you do with rhubarb?

You don't like it at all or just raw? It's great in pies! I wish you could get it in CA - you can, but it's really hard to find and most people have no idea what it is....."you mean rebar? For concrete?"

Freezing Rhubarb

Use rhubarb whole stalks or pieces. Choose, firm, tender, well-colored stalks with good flavor and few fibers. Wash, trim and cut into 1- or 2-inch pieces in lengths to fit the package. Heat rhubarb in boiling water for 1 minute cool promptly in cold water to retain color and flavor. Drain well.

Unsweetened pack:

Pack either raw or preheated rhubarb tightly into containers without sugar. Leave 1/2-inch headspace. Seal, label and freeze.

Syrup pack:

Pack either raw or preheated rhubarb lightly into containers; cover with cold 50-percent syrup (1 cup sugar to 1 cup water). Leave 1/2-inch headspace. Seal, label and freeze.


Puree:

Prepare rhubarb as for rhubarb stalks or pieces. Add 1 cup water to 1 1/2 quarts (2 pounds) rhubarb and boil 2 minutes. Cool and press through a sieve. To 1 quart (2 pounds) puree, mix 2/3 cup sugar. Pack into containers leaving 1/2 inch headspace. Seal, label and freeze.

Hey, that's a good idea! Is there a way to prepare it as a side dish? You know, like have say steak for dinner with a side of rhubarb (like you'd have a side of asparagus or something).

Rhubarb Chutney

Field-grown rhubarb can usually be found from late winter to early summer, peaking from April to June. Most commonly featured in pies, rhubarb can also be used in spiced chutneys to serve alongside baked ham or roasted pork loin.

Makes about 1 quart
1/2 onion, finely chopped
1 tablespoon fresh ginger root, peeled and finely chopped
1 tablespoon Chinese five spice powder :Shrug:
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon grated orange zest
1/2 cup sherry vinegar
1 cup brown sugar
2/3 cup raisins
1 1/2 pounds rhubarb, trimmed and chopped

Combine onion, ginger, Chinese five spice powder, salt, orange zest, vinegar, brown sugar and raisins in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and cook for 10 minutes, until sugar is dissolved and onions are soft. Add rhubarb, reduce heat and cover. Simmer 10 minutes, stirring frequently, until the rhubarb is tender and the chutney coats the back of a spoon. Take care not to overcook or the rhubarb will be mushy. Serve warm or at room temperature. Chutney can be chilled for up to a week.
