20 Brilliant Rhubarb Recipes


I love rhubarb and we grow loads at Eco-Gites of Lenault.  Crumble is a perennial favourite but each year I try to find some new ways to serve this vegetable we always think of as a fruit.  In case you are in need of some inspiration I have put together a range of ideas you might like to try.

  4. Love this! I had a giant rhubarb plant in my garden that unfortunately had to go - I had a phase with a lot (a LOT) of rhubarb crumble and rhubarb smoothies... I would have loved to have all these other ideas back then... another classic I can think of is strawberry and rhubarb jam, it's delicious! #goinggreen

  5. We've just planted rhubarb in the veg patch. Really hoping it will take and that we'll get a bumper harvest next year. All these recipes sound delish!
