In the process of picking up the yard Saturday, I also pruned my rhubarb patch.  It was starting to go to seed, so I pulled the seed pods out and tossed them in a pile, but the thing about pulling seed pods is that they often pull up a stalk or two of rhubarb along with them.

I figured as long as I was inadvertently pulling rhubarb, I may as well pick some intentionally, too.

I picked all of this rhubarb Saturday afternoon, and it took me close to three hours Saturday night to chop it all.  I’ve been researching jelly recipes all week because it’s just sitting in my fridge right now and I really want to do something with it.  I suppose I’ll end up freezing a bunch of it, though, because I have way more than I can use right now.

And I still have all of this left!

      I love rhubarb sauce. Warm or cold, or even over ice cream – it’s a treat that’s tough to beat! Especially if it’s mixed with strawberries…Yum!

      I finally found a jelly recipe to try, but I suspect I’m going to have to invest in some containers one way or another. I don’t have enough empty yogurt cups to reuse, and I’m totally out of freezer bags, so it looks like a trip to the store is in order before I can use up what I’ve got (and then pick more!). 🙂

        worth it though. I have a couple of little rhubarb plants but I have never had much luck with them – I have a very tricky garden but they were doing better this year so fingers crossed. Am away from there at the moment so I will have to wait and see.

          Absolutely! I’ve already picked more this year than I did last year, and I’m eager to pick more. It’s a decent-sized patch, and the best part is that I didn’t have to establish it (I have a black thumb)! 😀

          Hope yours does well this year, too!
