Twitter's a great place to hang out... sometimes you can ask a simple question and sometimes the replies come firing in, within seconds. Last night I sent out a simple tweet:
"Harvested an armful of rhubarb from community garden today but what can I make that doesn't include lots of sugar?"
Here are the replies, and they all sounded so delicious that I thought I'd share them...
@LoveToGrowLass : rhubarb chutney, stewed rhubarb with maple syrup, grated ginger and lemon, served with yogurt
@Guestlandlord: use it as a layer at the bottom of a bread and butter pudding. Its sharpness cuts the richness of the B & B's sugar/custard.
@luckylottielisa : pan fried mackerel and roasted rhubarb.
@likemamuse2bake : rhubarb chutney
@frandowdsofa : recipe ideas here http://frandowdsofa.wordpress.com/2010/05/14/rhubarb-rhubarb/ Also mixing small chunks into pork burgers worked nicely, with extra crumbled black pudding.
@JadaJelly : rhubarb and orange slump http://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/5883/rhubarb-and-orange-slump
@fenifur : Baking/stewing it with pineapple or strawberries, rhubarb daal. Also http://www.rhubarbinfo.com/recipes
@EcoGitesLenault - rhubarb chutney http://forum.downsizer.net/index.php?component=catalogdisplay&show_post=751106&Cuisine=&Course=&Special1=&search_text=rhubarb
Hard to choose but think I'll be trying out the chutney and will post up the recipe once it's made. A big thanks to everyone who took the trouble to reply, and you can find me at www.twitter.com/Greensideupveg most evenings ;)
