Raves for Rhubarb

Click to enlarge

Late spring is rhubarb time and with two robust patches, I stew a lot of it, make this yummy German rhubarb coffee cake and cut up the rest to put in the freezer for later use.
If you'd like the recipe for this cake, check my recipe page section on the left side column at the bottom.
I'm linking with Mary at Little Red House for Mosaic Monday, the place to find collages on just about everything.

  1. Hi Judith Sweetie...
    Oh my goodness does this ever take me back a few years. Many in fact. Grandma made the best rhubarb pie. I miss all those wonderful recipes she held in her bead. I will be checking out your recipe as well.

    Thank you for the wonderful share today. I am so tickled to see a great recipe to try. Have a beautiful Sunday sweet friend. Many hugs and much love, Sherry

  2. Rhubarb time is my favorite. I always try to put some away to add to strawberry jam. Last week I made Ina Garten's Rhubarb Crisp - wonderful!

  3. Hi Judith,
    I was stopping by to check out your garden tea and found you talking rhubarb! I can't wait to have some rhubarb! It's my favourite treat this time of year! I have tried unsuccessfully several times to grow it but my hubby loves to go over it with the lawn mower. *It's a long story.*

    Your tea in the garden looks wonderful and the scone with blueberries; yummy!

    We are getting much cold rain and have had our fill for a while. This coming week promises us more of the same which is a wee bit depressing.
    In any case, we're hoping David Phillips of Environnment Canada is right about an Atlantic warm dry Summer!

    Blessings,
    Sandi

  4. I'm looking forward to my first taste of rhubarb in the form of a crumble. Maybe this week if it ever stops raining long enough for it to grow! Enjoy.

  7. I like your mosaic and the colors, but I must say I did not like rhubarb as a child, though I'm not sure why. And I don't think I've had it much since!

  9. My mother loved rhubarb. As a child I refused to eat anything she made with it, but my tastes changed as an adult. Now I love it. Lovely mosaic.

  10. Rhubarb is so pretty in the garden, such great shots. I've only had it once, very tart for me, but I think I would like it in a cake, looks delicious!

  11. What wonderful color you have in this rhubarb. Reminds me of the times mom was making my dad's favorite rhubarb pie! Cathy

  12. How interesting that you posted about rhubarb today when I have been seriously considering planting it. I've never been a rhubarb fan, per se, always thinking it tasted like a sweet version of celery. But recently a friend made a juice out of it and I was intrigued by that so thought maybe I should give it another try.

  14. Am so looking forward to harvesting my rhubarb this year after giving it a rest last. We were overcome with slugs for some reason. Not this year. Your mosaic makes me very eager to try some of the recipes denied to us for two years. Now I'm off to find your recipe.

  19. That sounds so good! I used to always buy rhubarb and strawberry pie at the bakery! OH MY! Enjoy your week! ♥

  20. I made a strawberry rhubarb pie for a boyfriend years ago and it turned out so well that he barely got a piece before his family ate it all. Your post reminds me that I need to dust that recipe off and make one for my family.

  21. Incredible! You've inspired me to get some right away. We used to have huge patches of it but don't at this property. I don't think I'd make cake but I sure will put it on vanilla ice cream. :)

  22. I almost bought a rhubarb plant at the nursery last week - now I wish I had. I just have to find a place for it. I love rhubarb and what you can do with it.

  23. What a wonderful mosaic!
    I love rhubarb and will look for it in my market. I heard that it takes up a lot of room in the garden, so I haven't tried it there.
    Have a great day!

  24. Mmmmm, looks great! I need to cut some rhubarb and make a pie or another favorite, "Rhubarb Meringue." Seems I get so busy planting and weeding that I have forgotten to pick my rhubarb - I did pick some radishes for a salad today though. Have a wonderful week, dear friend!
    Blessings, Beth
