Got rhubarb? Here are 33 ways to cook with rhubarb this season to delight and inspire you to get cooking. Why not try something new?
It’s rhubarb season! The edible stalks of the rhubarb plant grow in abundance in spring to early summer. It also grows in the autumn. If you can get your hands on some — through the farmers market, a friend’s backfield patch or in your own garden — there’s so much you can do with it.
Though rhubarb can be used in savory applications — chop it up and use it in your stirfries or roast it with other veggies — it’s most commonly used in sweet recipes.
And rhubarb is ever so delightful in them.
There are 33 ways to cook with rhubarb this season. I hope it inspires you to make something fresh and new.
