Since I am hip-deep in rhubarb right now in Michigan, I thought I would do a mini-roundup of great rhubarb recipes from the blog archives! And I know I’m posting this during fresh rhubarb season, but I’ve also made these all successfully with frozen rhubarb as well!
This recipe is from Tom’s family and is by far his favorite rhubarb dessert. It features an oatmeal cookie pie crust. Yum.
This is a fast, easy gelatin dessert that is fabulous with whipped cream!
This has two variations on one recipe. You can either use a cake mix or make a cake topping from scratch. But either way it makes a sweet-tart dessert that has a crunchy marshmallow crust.
Even though I just posted this last week, I wanted to update everyone on some variations I’ve made of this dessert. The first was an apple version, in which I substituted three cups of peeled, chopped apple for the rhubarb. I also added 1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon to the crumble topping. I also reduced the amount of sugar in the base and topping because I was using a sweet variety of apple. I thought this was a good variation, but a bit more dry than the rhubarb version.
I also made a Bluebarb version, in which I substituted a cup of blueberries for a cup of the rhubarb in the recipe and that version was fantastic! Blueberry and rhubarb is one of my favorite fruit combinations, which I actually discovered in a vintage Farm Journal Cookbook. (The bluebarb jam recipe I discovered is coming up soon in the posting schedule!) My mother made a strawberry rhubarb version of this, subbing in one cup of sliced strawberries and she said that was good as well. So this is a pretty versatile dessert!
What about you guys? What are your favorite rhubarb recipes?
