Mine will soon be ready for the first pick. Not forced. Any recipe suggestions?

Rhubarb crumble is my favourite. :) I could just eat some now with lovely thick custard.
Keep calm and carry on.

Do as we used to as kids.......dip raw sticks of rhubarb into a cup of sugar.....yum :shock:

What with the fruit acid and the scoops of granulated, it's a wonder I've still got my own teeth! :?

I know someone who asked his wife to make him some rhubarb and custard like his mam used to make. She wasn't the world's best cook, but she did her best. She just put a stick of uncooked rhubarb on a plate, and poured custard over. :lol:
Keep calm and carry on.

Can't think of any, but I'm minded of the old saying: The Lord made the rhubarb - but the Devil made the cook.

Cook 1 lb of Rhubarb with 1/2 pint of water
Add a Strawberry Jelly and allow to dissolve
turn into a dish

Leave to set in the fridge

Hot stewed rhubarb poured over cold ice cream is one of my favorites.

I'll try that, it'll make a change from rhubarb crumble. I think gooseberries would be nice poured over icecream too. :)
