Harvesting Rhubarb

We harvested some rhubarb! The leaves were getting huge and overshadowing everything else in the vicinity so we cut the plants back. All you have to do is leave 2 stems on a plant for it to keep coming back, and a rhubarb plant can apparently live for 20+ years. We will have rhubarb foreverrrrr!

We are looking for rhubarb recipes, and so far have made the compote to try these little sandwich cakes. I’ve also got a recipe for a rhubarb cake that I’ve made in the past that is excellent. More to come later!
