Six Ridiculously Delicious Rhubarb Recipes


No Comments


Want to know a (not-so-secret) secret? Maggie is crazy—as in over the moon—about rhubarb. How do I know? Let’s just say that the last few weeks of recipe testing for her upcoming cookbook, Food Gift Love, have included a delightful amount of rhubarb-centric recipes.

Not that I’m complaining. I have been hopelessly devoted to the ruby-colored stalks since my Grandma Peg (or Gramma Piggy as I called her before I could enunciate properly) made me my very first rhubarb pie. There were no strawberries; no, my grandma kept it simple and just let the intoxicating tartness of the rhubarb shine. It was the best pie of my life, and I have cherished the stalk-y vegetable (yup, it’s a vegetable) ever since.

Maggie’s appreciation for rhubarb is just one of the many reasons I adore her. It’s also why I turned to talented food bloggers to help showcase just how amazing it can be. This is for Maggie, my Gramma Piggy, and all the other rhubarb-lovers in the world. Enjoy!

4. The Rhubarb Sour: So very pretty in pink. Rhubarb simple syrup and bitters add a splash of spring to this oh-so-addictive cocktail. Cheers! {From Verses from my kitchen}


5. Rhubarb Fizz Cocktail: Toast to sunny days and bright flavors with this slightly tart and sweet celebratory concoction. {From Baked Bree}

6. Rhubarb Ice Cream with Pistachios: Take a moment. Let it sink in. Rhubarb ice cream. Dairy-free rhubarb ice cream. With pistachios. Happy summer. {From What’s Cooking Good Looking}
