The best rhubarb recipes

Although rhubarb is a vegetable, it is used more in sweet cuisine. Its slightly sour taste and juiciness predestined it to form the filling of various pastries.

It can also be preserved as compote or jam. For use fresh, its season is relatively short, roughly from May to the end of June.

We use rhubarb stalks without leaves . Rhubarb grown in the garden is harvested before flowering and the petioles are not cut, but broken off. Peel off the hard skin before use. Then cut the light green flesh of the petioles. They are usually cut into cubes or sticks about 3 cm long.

So let’s get to the sweet rhubarb recipes themselves!
