Demystifying Rhubarb!

Hi everyone. In case you were all wondering, I am keeping up with the green smoothies. I am still waiting to see if my energy increases but I don’t see a marked difference yet. I’ll keep you posted. I do feel good about getting all the vegetables and fruit in me , though.

I think I will discuss rhubarb which is in season right now. My friend Abby is intimidated by it and I feel a need to talk about how easy it is to prepare. You simply wash it, cut it into 1/2″ pieces and steam until tender. Then, you add sugar to taste, starting with a Tablespoon or so and then adding more. Stir it together and that’s it! No mystery, no nothing! Eat it by itself or stick it in a baking dish , top with your favorite pie dough recipe and back until crust is golden brown at 350 degrees. That’s it.

I will confess that i made it today and did not put enough sugar in and it was too tart. Don’t make my mistake which rendered it inedible. Enjoy!

    I love rhubarb and have done the crumbles, but since I found that I have to watch my sugars, I’ve been on a mission to find a fabulous savory recipe for it (since i still have a bunch in my crisper!) Do youknow any? I recently found a chutney recipe, as well as a rhubarb pilaf and a Persian Rhubarb Stew recipe that I want to try…I’ll keep you posted on how they turn out!
