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….
MAPLE ROASTED RHUBARB
- 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
