Just a short post as I have a few distractions this week and need to get my serious head down in preparation for them.
I mentioned last month that my rhubarb was growing fantastically well, and here is the proof - Just look at these thick long stems shimmering in white, pink and lime green. I am so, so pleased. Last year, I did not get to harvest many stems and they were also on the skinny side. This year I have been bestowed with an armful and there is much more to come! So excited, and I am not that much of a rhubarb fan, finding it a little too astringent, but D loves the stuff - so for him, I will be doing some cooking and baking.
I don't know if I will be able to get through these just between the two of us, so some stems are going over to my family: for the nippers; some being turned into crumble tonight; some transformed into a preserve of sorts and some chopped up for the freezer.
I am also always looking for new recipe ideas, so please if you have any suggestions they would be most welcome - sweet and savoury. I am sharing this post with Daphne and Dandelions who is hosting Harvest Monday.
