Tangy Rhubarb Salsa

Rating: 5 stars 23
This is a recipe I came up with while trying to figure out what to do with an over-abundance of rhubarb. I'm not fond of sugary, syrupy rhubarb sauces but I love rhubarb and I love salsa, so I figured why not put them together! Just grab a bag of tortilla chips, or better yet make your own, and enjoy! Feel free to adjust ingredients to your liking. Don't like jalapenos? Don't use them. Mix and match peppers however you like, just be sure to use 3 of them. Also, I prefer Nellie and Joe's® lime juice because it's a bit more tart than regular bottled or fresh-squeezed lime juice, but if you can't find it that's fine, just use what you have.

Rhubarb Jam

Rating: 4.5 stars 204
A rhubarb lover's delight! Rhubarb jam, pure and simple, with the consistency of apple butter. This jam also freezes well, but it will probably get eaten up before making it to the freezer! Fabulous!

Oma's Rhubarb Cake

Rating: 5 stars 692
Oma always makes this for her grand kids after she picks through her garden. Probably not good for the thighs but Oma's cooking is always good for the taste buds.

Easy Apple Rhubarb Jam

Although apple rhubarb jam may sound weird, it is amazingly delicious! You can substitute strawberries for the apples to make strawberry rhubarb jam.

Ginger Rhubarb Crisp

Rating: 4.5 stars 60
A tangy crisp with a hint of ginger and a nice crunch to the topping. The custard filling is soft and creamy, yet holds together beautifully. This makes a large crisp - great to take to a potluck or party.
