Rhubarb

Rhubarb Loaf

Well I couldn't go the whole batch of rhubarb without a couple dessert recipes right!? We're coming close to the end of the collection now just a couple more recipes to go. Next up on the list is rhubarb cake! 

The trick I find to baking with rhubarb is making sure you have a little sweet with the natural tart. Soaking rhubarb in a bit of sugar before baking with it. It makes this local tart favorite into a candied delight!

Strawberry Rhubarb Jam

It's rhubarb season! This tart vegetable grows like a weed in my Nanny's yard so I was blessed with a bag full of beautiful stocks this weekend!!

The first thing I was inspired to make was a big batch of strawberry rhubarb jam.. For some reason I was inspired to start making it at 10pm on a Sunday night? Who needs to be ready for a Monday morning anyways? Pffft Overrated.

I had convinced myself that I had cursed myself to a very long night of jam making however I was pleasantly surprised when the whole thing only took 50 minutes from the start of sanitizing to the finishing of bottling. I used repurposed Classico pasta sauce bottles that my mother had given me (never noticed before that they say "Mason" right on them and they fit the mason jar lids perfectly! This excited me almost as much as getting the rhubarb! And will be the subject of many more activities in the near future!
