{weekend reading} rhubarb recipe edition

Here’s reason #2498 why having a blog is awesome. You experiment with new foods. Case in point; Rhubarb. I have had lots of rhubarb strawberry pie but I have never personally made anything with it. N-O-T-H-I-N-G. As of today, I’ve made freezer pureed rhubarb w/ vanilla (for later use with strawberries), Rhubarb, Apple & Ginger Jam, Local Kitchen’s Rhubarb BBQ Sauce (AMAZING!), Autumn’s Makes and Does’ Rhubarb & White Wine Sorbet, and Gluten-Free Girl’s Rhubarb Cobble for tasting samples at Saturday’s farmers market. Next on my list is rhubarb ketchup. I am loving the rhubarb!

Since I am still about three or four weeks away from getting back into the swing of my heavy-hitting {weekend reading} NATIONAL EDITION (waiting until CSA-sign up madness is over = expect a new post Sunday, June 19th) I decided to do a quickie recipe link love for my new favorite food.

First off, Kaela over at Local Kitchen give a great detailed overview on the Basics on Preserving Rhubarb

Secondly, Kate Payne over at Hip Girl’s Guide for Homemaking has an amazing recap of her Rhubarb Fest 2011– all the recipes she’s made with her 2011 Season of rhubarb!

Super-Easy Rhubarb & White Wine Sorbet by Autumn Makes & Does

A Rhubarb Recipe Recap on the kitchn

Tigress’ Rhubarb Syrup for some drinky poo’s or as an ice cream topping

Orange Rhubarb Butter by Marisa at Food In Jars

Smitten Kitchen’s Rhubarb Streusel Muffins and then Kate at Hip Girl’s Guide to Homemaking has a GF version! yay!

What Julia Ate has a great use for rhubarb jam, buttermilk muffins with jam in the center.

Rhubbarb Apricot Conserve by by Toronto Tasting Notes…

Strawberry, Rhubarb & Orange Maple Compote by Small Measure via Design Sponge

Mostly Foodstuffs has a great recipe for Rhubarb Liqueur and if you live in NYS, like we do, then What Julia Ate’s post will be most helpful as grain alcohol is illegal here. She made it from vodka, so I will too!

Finally, Punk Domestic’s All About Rhubarb Listings
(lots of good recipes here!!!)

      Please “roar” on FSC whenever you want Ms. Tigress… its an honor. Just updated the links to include your sassy shallot-heavy (my favorite) ketchup. Loooks really great. I ran out of tomatoes in my larder, so you’re ketchup is PERFECT for right now. Making it tomorrow!

    Can’t wait to pour over all these links. Really helpful. Thanks!

      Hi Cindy! Glad you like the links. Sundays are usually a labor-of-love mega post with food policy & recipes links. Since taking a CSA Coordinator gig, I can’t see to get that post written in a timely manner, so for now, its recipe link love for one specific food item.

      I just peaked around your site and its fabulous! I’m hoping this will begin a lovely blog friendship.
