I swear rhubarb was determined to be a dessert food by people so desperate for a plant that they'd eat the first thing that grew in the spring that wasn't poisonous.

But hey, the rhubarb plants came with the house, so rhubarb crisp works for me...

Our rhubarb was planted last year, so we cant harvest until next spring. But it is doing very well and we might try this recipe then.

/Wife does an apple rhubarb upside down cake I'd kill for.

When I was very young and we visited Grandma & Grandpas farm, Grandma would give us kids stalks of rhubarb and a bowl of sugar.  Delicious!

Rhubarb has a place, but after the first flush of spring, that shiat can go straight to hell. A heroic amount of sugar only does so much.

Me mum makes rhubarb gin with her harvest. I think it's just by steeping the cut stalks in gin for a few days, I mean, she's not distilling from scratch, just flavouring pre-made gin.

"Ruby" around here is a raspberry ale from McMenamins.

Just transplanted some giant rhubarb from our prior house, so it won't be producing usable stalks until next year.

1 1/2 cups finely chopped rhubarb
1 cup sugar
1 cup water
Boil 3-5 minutes until rhubarb is tender
Strain and cool
Mix 9 ounces of rhubarb syrup with 8 ounces of gin, 1/2 cup of lemon, juice, 12 ounces of prosecco, and ice.
Tada! Rhubarb gin fizz that's pretty and pink, tart and sweet

Rhubarb is the sour fingers of Satan.

Nice! I've got a bit more rhubarb in the backyard, gonna make some syrup for the weekend alcohol experiments.

So she makes rhubarb gin by adding even more botanical flavour  to vodka??  I like to tease my gin-loving friends by pointing out that gin is fundamentally just flavoured vodka.

And, Subby, there is no botanical definition of "vegetable", like there is of fruit. It's a culinary distinction.

even a rhubarb goat cheesecake.

That sounds awesome!
