Rhubarb Recipes?

So at the Farmer's Market this morning some beautiful rhubarb jumped into my arms. I started thinking about rhubarb crisp, or steel-cut oats with rhubarb and cinnamon for breakfast, but then I thought one of you might have an even better idea. Honestly, I didn't have a plan for it when I bought it. I was waiting for the farmer to weigh the arugula, and there was this beautiful shiny red stuff.

 

On a side note, it is such a blessing to have a great market again. There are many, many small farms locally, most organic and many growing heritage crops. For gently raised meat, we generally have a choice of chicken, turkey, lamb, beef and buffalo. I could wish for a good local pork supplier, but nowhere is perfect!

 

I restrained myself today, but still came home with two different fresh goat cheeses, eggs, milk, the aforementioned arugula and rhubarb, two different kinds of strawberries, spring onions, baby garlic, asparagus, lamb chorizo, and a ridiculously decadent cheese danish for the ride home.

 

Hmm... maybe the rhubarb could work nicely with the lamb chorizo...

Here is a nice rhubarb chutney recipe I have made for years.  It would go great with lamb.

 

 

Ingredients
900 Gram Rhubarb (2 lb)
15 Gram Garlic ( 1/2 oz)
25 Gram Root ginger (1 oz)
2 Lemons, peel only
25 Gram Salt (1 oz)
15 Gram Cayenne pepper ( 1/2 oz)
450 Gram Sultanas (1 lb)
900 Gram Demerara sugar (2 lb)
600 ml Vinegar (20 fl oz)
Method
Makes 2.3 kg (5 lb)

Shred the rhubarb finely and chop the garlic. Crush the root ginger and tie in a piece of muslin with the lemon peel.

Put all the ingredients into a pan and simmer gently, stirring frequently, until the mixture thickens.

Remove the bag and can the chutney while hot.

Keep it for 3 months before using.

Thanks! The rhubarb chutney sounds perfect, and I have everything I need for it already.

 

I had hoped today would be a hiking day, but we're getting smoke plumes from the wildfires (even though they are more than 300 miles away). Today has been redesignated a cooking day.
