Rhubarb

I've been given some rhubarb & made a crumble with the slimmest stems (which were between half an inch & an inch thick).

Thing is, I now have half a dozen 18 inch long 2 inch thick stems left. I personally wouldn't have picked these, and suspect that they may be too stringy to use, but I welcome others' views. Worth using, or not, what do people think? If they will still be pleasant enough (or not, I suppose!) is there anything that thicker stems are better for?

I would be surprised if they were that stringy so early in the season, but I'm sure you will remove any strings when you slice the sticks.

I like to microwave or bake rhubarb with orange juice and zest. Though to be honest they are not my favourite, but OH likes them.

Have you tried Delia's rhubarb crumble ice cream ?
It is lovely. I have also made it without the crumble part and added some broken up flakes and some swirls of the rhubarb puree.This was a big treat.

Brilliant, thanks all! I have tried the rhubarb crumble ice cream before, but I confess I didn't have my summer head on, & had forgotten about ice cream, & I also hadn't seen a chutney recipe including rhubarb, so I think I may split the quantity & do half rhubarb puree to freeze for ice cream later in the year & chutney the rest!

Violet Eyes ....

I have googled rhubarb & orange chutney but there are loads of recipes, all with different variations - with mace, or ginger etc .... Would you be able to upload your preferred recipe so I can go with your tried & tested version?

Rhubarb chutney

Hi queen of puds
My recipe is in my 1978 farmhouse kitchen recipe book 2. Maybe you are not old enough to remember it on TV I remember it well so I can't put it on here but I have done a search of it on Google and if you look for rosiemakesjams.com you will find the recipe rhubarb and orange chutney. It is the same one it doesn't say how many onions it's 3 and 2 oranges in the past I have left out those spices and added 1 tsp each of allspice, ginger, and cinnamon it really is one of my favourites and I am going to make it as soon as I find some nice rhubarb :0)

Rhubarb chutney

I'm certainly old enough, Violet Eyes, although I don't remember it - but funnily enough I looked at Rosie's recipe but abandoned it because it didn't say how many onions & oranges! I will make that chutney my task of the day tomorrow now though - thanks v much :)

Rhubarb Dessert

I was out last week and I had a lovely,tasty and tangy rhubarb pud. It was baked rhubarb in a very creamy vanilla custard...I looked online for a recipe and I reckon it was close to a Rhubarb baked custard cream.Hmmm... it was delicious.: )

Rhubarb baked in custard

That sounds interesting - I have seen a recipe for rhubarb creme brulee but I think you need very pink, young slim stems for that.

Rhubarb chutney

I'm just waiting for the chutney to finish cooking it looks good, shame I won't get to try it for a few months but I'm sure it will be worth the wait.
Might even make another lot.
