    I love to cut the rhubarb up and add some water to cover and cook until rhubarb is soft. Then I add a sweetner, can be sugar or a sugar substitute to taste.

    Next, strain the rhubarb out of the juice and discard the rhubarb. Put the juice into ice cube trays and serve cubes of the juice in glasses of gingerale, club soda, etc. It makes a very refreshing summer drink and is pretty pink as well.

    Love rhubarb,too. I can keep my patch all summer if I cut off all the seed heads. This dessert tastes a lot like rhubarb cream pie, but much simpler to whip up. Thanks for the recipes!!


    Mom's Rhubarb Dessert
    1 1/4 cup flour
    1/2 cup butter
    1/4 heaping cup powered sugar
    3 cup sugar
    6 eggs
    2 T. lemon juice
    1/2 t. salt
    1/4 cup flour
    6 cups finely chopped rhubarb
    1/2 t. nutmeg if desired

    Mix flour, butter and powdered sugar together and pat into a greased 9 by 13-inch pan. Mix together rest of ingredients and pour over crust. Bake at 350 for approximately 1 hour. Center will be set, but not stiff.

    1 French Vanilla cake mix prepared by directions on the box - maybe slightly less water. Pour into pan.

    Bake at 350 for most of an hour. Cover lightly with foil at the end if the center doesn't get done easily. Remve from oven, let stand five minutes, run a knife around the edge and turn out onto a platter. Scrap any goo unto the cake. It's so pretty, you don't want to waste it.

    Serve warm or cold. Good with a little whipped cream or Cool Whip.

    Second would be Rhubarb Crisp. Third, just steamed rhubarb served cold over ice cream. Rhubarb Muffins.
    YUM! That sounds SO good! Thanks for sharing!
    I've made the same; but put the rhubarb in first; then the jello; followed by the marshmallows and cake mix. Helps the jello soak into the rhubarb.

    My favorite recipie is a strawberry rhubarb pie. I use one large package of strawberry jello for the sugar and thickening. Let pie cool before serving; lets jello set.

    Raspberry and rhubarb pie!!! 2nd to that is strawberry rhubarb pie. They are made the same just using different fruit. It's easy to freeze, too. Just cut it up into slices and put into freezer bags. Flatten them and freeze. When you are ready for pie, just add the chosen fruit and follow your favorite recipe. Yummy!!

    I take 1 package of frozen rhubarb and frozen strawberries (each 20 oz) or the equivalent of fresh produce and add i small pkge of Jello sugar free gelatin dessert with a little water(about 1/2cup) and simmer on the stove till cooked thoroughly. This is available then thruout the year and not only when they are in season. Little or no calories and always delish!

    Great Idea! I would have never thought of it. Sometimes, not always, I would like to have rhubarb without all the sugar. Thanks! :-D

    Today I made rhubarb custard cake.

    1 yellow cake mix--make as directed
    Put batter in a 9x13 pan
    Sprinkle 4 cups chopped rhubarb on top of batter
    Sprinkle 1 cup sugar on top of batter/rhubarb
    Pour 1 cup heavy cream over top
    Bake at 350 for 45-50 minutes

    Serve each piece upside down in bowl and top with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

    The custard forms while baking and is sooooo good warm with the ice cream. I does not last very long around here.

    I stewed rhubarb in the crock pot last week!
    Wash and chop and put in the crock.
    On high .... only a couple of hours. (variable to size of crock and amount of rhubarb!)
    After stir in jello powder, and sweeten to taste.

    Recipe had said to add 1/4 cup water for 4 cups. Next time I'll probably only wash the rhubarb and let that be the moisture.

    The extra water created too much liquid, so I scooped some of it off and kept in a jar ..... mix equal parts with ginger ale for a nice drink!

    This is my favorite rhubarb recipe:

    Fresh Rhubarb Cake

    1 beaten egg
    1 cup sugar
    1 cup sour cream
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    1-1/2 cups flour
    dash salt
    1 teaspoon vanilla
    2 cups chopped raw rhubarb

    Mix all together. Top with 1/2 cup brown sugar and 1/2 cup chopped nuts.
    Bake at 350 degrees for 1/2 hour.
    Serve with whipped cream.

    Note:

    This recipe came from a newspaper shortly after we moved into our first house... we had a huge yard and along the whole back there were rhubarb plants... at least 30 of them... the previous owners made rhubarb wine... we never knew what to do with it all... but gave tons away... my husband would be out every morning getting some to take to work and hand out... and he dug up plants for people that wanted some for their yards... it almost always grew back.

    I "only" have 8 plants here... but still give a lot away. I plan on trying some of the other delicious sounding recipes that others have posted too.
