Rhubarb ideas?

The previous owner of my house planted one rhubarb plant. Last year, I spent a bunch of time trying to come up with something new and different to do with it, then got busy and missed it altogether. What a waste! So, one plant isn't a ton. One of my very favorite things in the whole wide world is strawberry-rhubarb pie, but I know myself, I won't find time to make one. (anyone want to make one for me?? Please??) I toyed with compote for ice cream, but unless I supplement w/ farmer's market rhubarb (which means remembering to buy some before mine goes bad), I don't really have enough. I'm intrigued by a savory idea - anyone ever do something totally unique with the stuff?


  1. I'm in the same situation, one plant, but not sure what to do with it. What about instead of a pie, shortcake instead? Or perhaps grill them and serve with ice cream?
