This is our third stab at rhubarb. I hope it works this time! (One attempt fell victim to chickens, another to a too-wet spring.) I want some rhubarb pie and jam and sauce! Rhubarb bread, rhubarb muffins, rhubarb cake! There are so many things you can make with rhubarb, and it can even be canned alone, hot-packed with sugar, to save until you decide. It’s great mixed with so many other fruits, too.
Rhubarb is a love-it or hate-it thing. I used to not like it. My great-aunt Ruby always had rhubarb in her garden. Her rhubarb was still going when I first moved into the old farmhouse. My cousin loathes rhubarb and I think he killed it. (I’m just kidding. Maybe. Only he knows!)
What about you? Do you love it or hate it? And do you want a BBB?! (Plenty of rhubarb know-how in there if you’re a lover.) What’s popping up early in your canning garden?
It’s a Ball Blue Book Project day! Today’s Ball Blue Book is sponsored by JeannieB in honor of her mother, Helen Sharpe Frazee.
