I like to cook rhubarb up like applesauce and eat it on toast. Yummy. But it can take lots of sugar. Some rhubarb is very tart.
Ya'll are making me hungry. Guess I'll have to make a run to the store on the way home. hmmmm
Patti:I get rutabagas, parsnips and turnips mixed up.
A ruta what know?
I know what parsnips are since Jodie or Mark or both used them in their crockpot recipes on QOL. I had to look them up. I made Jodie's recipe. Yummy.
Kris:A ruta what know?
Kris rutabagas are in the root crop family. Very large in comparison to other root crops with a slightly thick peel. Can be hard to peel but very yummy when sliced and boiled with salt, pepper, and butter. They are also good to mix with parsnips and potatoes and cook together. Not sure but I think it may be more of a southern thing.
Kathy, A great story and i hope dessert was great - it amazes me how todays kids do not know a lot of the things that we knew and we are actually losing more each year... But we can teach them as you did her.
For Mother's day I got...RHUBARB!!!
Hubby and the kids just dropped in on a neighbor who has about a jillion plants around his property (Deer deterant). He told them to take what they wanted because his wife rarely uses any. They came home with two big grocery bags full...and now I have a years supply in the freezer! YUMMY!

Lucky , lucky you. I wish I was closer and could share in the wealth!

I went looking for rhubarb but our local grocery didn't have any. The search continues...
it's way too early for the rhubarb to be up here. mom has a delish recipe for a rhubarb sour cream pie. now you guys are makin' me hungry gini

I always thought that turnips and rutabagas were the same...but rhubarb is delish...it has been ready here for a few weeks now...although we are 3 weeks ahead of schedule garden wise...till the last few days and now we are having touches of snow...the rule of thumb is...never plant till May 24 weekend...for our zone anyway...but Mother Nature likes to fool us sometimes with early summer..
This should make you drool. I double the crumble part because I am greedy. Also I just put the crumble ingredients into the food processor and give a whirl.

the sugar, flour and sour cream together.
fruit in pie shell and cover with sour cream mixture.
c soft butter
c brown sugar
until crumbly and then sprinkle over the fruit. Bake at 450 for 15 minutes and then at 350 for 30 minutes.
Kathy, that recipe sounds wonderful. I may have to pick up some rhubarb on the way home.
Speaking of fruits and vegetables people aren't familiar with, what about tomatillos? A friend makes a great salsa recipe, with lots of tomatillos, avocados and jalapenos.
Your recipe made me hungrey...yum. Will have to pick up the ingredients soon and try it out. Thanks for sharing.
I love tomatillo salsa. YUMMY>
Oh Kathy...As soon as I finish off the chocolate cake DD made yesterday, I may have to make that yummy concoction. Sounds Devine!
Patti, I enjoy tomitillos now and then, but so often the ones I buy seem rather tasteless. Care to offer adviceon how to select the yummy ones?
