Here are four new ways we've tried rhubarb. Three are drinks and one is a cake. First up, Rhubarb Milkshake. I used my standard 'recipe' of approximately equal parts vanilla ice cream and fruit (in this case, rhubarb I cooked in a tiny bit of water and then cooled), plus a few tablespoons of milk to get the perfect consistency. It was tasty, but not amazing. I'd definitely have it again, but I'd increase the amount of rhubarb.
Next was a Rhubarb Vodka Cocktail. It wasn't good. We ended up adding a ton of rhubarb juice to improve the taste. There are a lot of recipes for rhubarb cocktails out there, so I might try again with a different recipe. Or not.
This Fizzy Rhubarb Lemonade was delicious! I made a standard lemonade base but used sparkling water instead of regular water, then drizzled in sweetened rhubarb juice (made by straining rhubarb sauce). Yum!!
I served Rosy Rhubarb Upside-Down Cake when my friends came over for Mystery Crafting. I omitted the lemon extract since I didn't have any on hand. The cake was good and I'd serve it again. None of my friends who tried it had had rhubarb before. I'm happy to say they liked it a lot!
I've done a scrapbook layout called "Geocaching Evangelists"... maybe I should make one with the title of "Rhubarb Evangelist!" Have I managed to convince any of you to try it yet?
