Ah ha! my search for rhubarb turned up this interesting piece: 

One Ingredient, Many Ways: Rhubarb

It has a list of savory rhubarb ... a new idea for me. i.e.


The Daily Spud: Rhubarb Potato Gratin

A great pot-luck with all our various talents would be so much fun ... and like others of you, my travelling days are over. 

Luckily, we have this mode of communication and we have some memories coming out of these contacts. I feel as though I know some of you personally and your families. It is sweat to make emotional contact with others, even if we are far distant.

Joan, with regard to the variations on the rhubarb syrup, I noticed one called for the addition of thyme. I tried that once making blueberry syrup (to put over cheesecake) and I was pleasantly surprised at how good it is.

Patricia, I have never done the cruise to Alaska and know it must be very beautiful. I lived near Kenai for two years and loved it. Had trouble adjusting to the long winter, however. I grew violets under lights in my basement and took bouquets to neighbors throughout the winter. Little things like that made it pleasant.

Randall, you don't like rhubarb syrup? How about made into a pie, or bread? Is it the sourness of the flavor? 

I like to pick a stock in the garden and munch on it as I go about my chores. Yum yum!

Pat, an excellent recipe for rhubarb syrup! I copied into my recipe box and will try some of the alternatives they suggest. 

My rhubarb isn't up far enough yet. It is coming. 

The winds blow garbage cans all over the neighborhood. My next door neighbor's garbage can ended up far into my garden, even though the gate to the garden is relatively narrow. I suspect the can did quite a lot of dancing with the wind after it got back there.

Daniel, an easy plan for your early rhubarb, wash them well, slice them into small pieces, place the slices on parchment paper on a sheet pan and freeze quickly, then put in glass jars or plastic bags and store in the freezer. 

There is nothing like the rhubarb that comes up early in the spring. I didn't have the energy last year to do it and so I lost a whole season of rhubarb. I should be able to do it this year.

Hope you are getting enough rest.

Pat, about the "map"...I'm puzzled that they didn't use more different colors of dark reds or blues.  Unless they were trying to avoid making political statements....

Pat Spring will come.  For sure.

That rhubarb syrup sounds better every time I think about it.  Sorry Randall.

Comment by Randall Smith on March 16, 2014 at 9:01am

I still have rhubarb (and asparagus) in the freezer. And they're two "early risers". However, this year, I'm sure they'll be "sleeping in"! Rhubarb syrup sounds awful, I must confess. I'll stick to blueberry.
