Maple Roasted Rhubarb


I was just given some fresh rhubarb from the farm and tried playing with ideas on how to make a stewed rhubarb without burning it.  I usually leave it too long on the stove.

This Photo of a Recipe I played around with and created I posted on Facebook and seems to be spreading faster than ever, so I thought I had better put it up on the blog. This is the Easiest recipe you will ever find, other than the recipe for boiling water….


  • 6 stalks of Rhubarb, cleaned and chopped into pieces as short or long as you wish
  • 1/4 cup Maple Syrup, or more if you have a particularly sweet tooth
  • Squeeze of fresh Lime juice

Place all in a covered dish and bake at 350 degrees in the oven and walk away for 30 to 45 minutes depending on the size of your rhubarb.  Done

I love to serve this hot from the oven.  I put it over ice cream.  You could add whipped cream if you so desire and some nuts to make it pretty.

I would serve it cold for breakfast with yogurt on top and a bit of granola.  Or, cold as a sauce over some pound cake for dessert.  I really enjoy a dish of rhubarb beside my breakfast toast or at lunch with a hearty artisan style grilled cheese sandwich.  This rhubarb roasted becomes a great partner hot from the oven poured over pork roast or chops and roasted chicken as you would a gravy.

Rhubarb, you are such a versatile Vegetable!  Thank you
