Gol' dang it...I was afraid something might happen! I had to install a new keyboard, 'cause some of the keys won't respond anymore.
The keyboard design parameters did not take into account my (tongue-in-cheek) overwhelming physiological response to these delicious recipes. Well---Overproductive salivary glands might have caused such a problem.

One of our family favorites is "Bluebarb" anything- just substitute an equal measure of rhubarb for 1/2 the berries in any Blueberry recipe and bake as usual. Super fantastic flavor combo!
I agree, Patricia! An old-time pie maker also taught me the secret of adding 1 cup of blueberries in any rhubarb pie recipe. One friend proposed marriage after tasting my rhubarb pie. (His wife just laughed. )

Hi: It aint pie... but to a dutch oven of stewed rhubarb add 1 cup'o sugar and 1 can'o Drained Pinapple tidbits... This puts back the crunch after the rhubarb is cooked...The Pinapple will turn pink if it lasts long enough!!! Regards Alf S. p.s. I have a killer recipe 4 Rhubarb Meringue pie...an annual hit at our Church Bake Sale!!! Who says Guys can't make Pies??? Alf S. North shore of Lake Erie

Hi: Here goes...

In a micro-waveable bowl: Mix 2 cups of rhubarb (chopped into 1" pieces) with 2 tbsp flour combined with 1 cup sugar and 2 egg yolks. Mix well and nuke on high 2 min. Stir 2 min until thickened as jelly. Add 1 tbsp of butter stir until melted. Let cool. Pour into baked pie shell. Top with favorite meringue.

I use this meringue recipe 'cause its fluffy. Beat 2 egg whites with 1 tbsp cold water until they hold shape. Mix 2 tbsp sugar with 1 tbsp corn starch & 1/2 tsp baking powder. Add to egg whites and continue to beat until well combined. Bake @ 375-400 Deg F (approx 15 min). This meringue will not stick to your knife.

If you don't tell them its not lemon watch the look on their faces.
Enjoy

I don't know if we can keep this topic going as long as the "infamous" OKRA, but it seems to me that quite a few folks enjoy rhubarb in it's many forms.
The many variations are truly "mouth watering". Keep 'em coming!

Just a thought, maybe FGRV needs a recipe book as an on-going fund-raiser with DO recipes as the main theme but other recipes also welcome. Could they be sold at rallies and through the store?

Hi: The best thing that I ever heard of... that came from a rhubarb patch was a 13' Boler... For $1500.00 no less!!! Seems someone bought a property complete with rhubarb patch and in the midst of the patch was a Boler... They didn't want it so sold it to a friend... Some times you find the strangest things in someone elses garden... Alf S. North shore of Lake Erie

Actually, one of the tastiest things I ever made is rhubarb...ICE CREAM.

If you're interested, I'll post the recipe.

Post it please.
I have an ice cream maker but I do not bake and all of this talk about rhubarb makes me hungry for the rhubarb pies my grandmother made when I was small.
Now all I have to do is find the rhubarb.

How delightful to see this thread continuing and so many that enjoy Rhubarb!

It's been such a crazy, busy summer with the selling of my design studio, moving all that, and the selling of my home, I never got to make my desert...and, secretly, I love the large leaves in my flower beds!

I, too, am just salivating over all these recipes! Now, we just have to wait for next year's crop!

Or, does Rhubarb grow year 'round down South?

If I take a root from my plant here, will it grow pretty easily? Do you plant it deep or shallow?

If I do get to it before the snow flies, I'd be happy to send anyone a root as well! There was a few notes on the thread about finding it, may as well grow it!

Cheers!

PS, I'm off to New York City for a dose of art and opera! If you write, I' won't be home for a week.

www.studiogigi.net for garden pictures of the rhubarb!

Kudos to all you Betty Crocker winners. I'd be a hoot to see all the winners from my same year and what everyone's doing now. Is there a common thread here amongst winners?

lata, gatas!
