I quite like rhubarb but buy it rarely.
I find it a bit "boring" as there is not a lot you can do with it.
I have not made it into anything but rhubarb and apples, or a rhubarb pie, but may now have to think if it goes with savoury dishes, and try them!

I tried growing it without success as it is often, rather mostly, very expensive for some reason.

by Rice
not sure if it can be read properly . . it says"never rub another man's rhubarb"
by Rice
Rice, you are a true gem and make me laugh daily.

Why, thank you, Polly. I aim to please :-)))))))

No. I don't. Mum and Dad love it and Mum makes rhubarb and apple pie. Mum never grew her own rhubarb because she was always given a plentiful supply from neighbours and friends. You have to be very careful how you cook it, because it is poisonous.
what is poisonous about it apart from leaves?
by Finy
It must be the leaves then. Mum was always very careful and wouldn't let me near it. She always wore gloves when preparing it, and quickly discarded the water it was cooked in. When she got it from other peoples gardens, the leaves were always still attached.

It has NEVER really appealed to me,though my sister would beg for it when we were kids!! I have never bought fresh rhubarb, or grown it, I did try a frozen Rhubarb and Apple Crumble from the Supermarket recently which was quite okay,(because the crumble topping was so yummy!!!!)but I still would have prefered to just have had a simple yet delicious Apple Crumble
Rhubarb leaves contain poisonous substances, including oxalic acid, which is a nephrotoxic and corrosive acid that is present in many plants. Humans have been poisoned after ingesting the leaves, a particular problem during World War I when the leaves were mistakenly recommended as a food source in Britain. (Wikipedia)

I have never had it.
Yes I really like it

Have just THE best M/W Recipe for 'Rhubarb & Apple Crumble', & I make it frequently!
Just love it!
Served with fresh cream, or vanilla ice-cream, it's so delicious!

Love it !
Yes, had it a lot in England as a child and find it quite nice.
Having said all that, have not had it for a few years.
When I was at my daughter's place a couple of months back, she had made some . . . oh boy . . .YUM . . . set me off on a serious rhubarb binge!
by Rice

p.s....I mean my daughter-in-law....oops.
by jonaja
I love it. I also make a cake with almond meal and rhubarb, sliced fresh figs on the top and drizzled with honey before baking. A popular cake with males.
That sounds divine! (or it does now that I have read it twice and realised it is "figs" not "frogs" Wahahahahahaha!)
by Rice
Yes, I love rhubarb! My mum used to cook it a lot & serve it with yogurt, & my in-laws grew a lot of it, & cooked it with apple & served it with ice-cream, which was also yummy & I still have some rhubarb in the freezer actually!
