As a kid, my mom had Rhubarb in the garden. I remember taking a bowl of sugar and going out to the garden and breaking a piece of rhubarb off its stem and dipping it in the sugar. Oh, soo good. Childhood memories can be some of the best. I guess you’re either someone who loves rhubarb or not. Pies and cobblers and jams are just some of the ways to use this little unknown vegetable. I am picky, I like it sour, very little sweet.
So I created this recipe to have along with my scone or just to eat on its own.
Rhubarb sour/sweet relish
Depending on what you are making the recipe for; you will want to add more stalks.
I used one stalk.. it made about 1/2 cup.
Wash stalk and dice up. Make sure you do not eat the leafy part of the plant. You may get very sick.
Place in a pan, and add 1/4 cup of water and steam over medium heat.
Add 3 TB of Pyure or any other sweetener you desire. You taste to your liking.
Enjoy, this can be served with a pork loin, with a piece of toast, over ice cream, on anything you desire.
