Rhubarb season, again

I can take or leave rhubarb pie, cobbler, sauce, or any other of those typical rhubarb dishes. Making a rhubarb pie or cobbler is something I do for my brother, he loves rhubarb, but I probably won't do that until closer to the end of rhubarb season because I don't have time to drive into the heart of the city if I want to be done with the renovations to the house by the 1st of June. I particularly do not like rhubarb-strawberry combos. It is rhubarb season, again. I could try once more to make something savory (I did like the rhubarb won tons I made last year). But, has anyone come across a savory rhubarb dish? Or, has anyone used rhubarb with veggies in anything? I really do not care for rhubarb...but it seems to grow well here on the farm...I don't know what it is about rhubarb, but it is just not something I get too excited about...now eggplant, on the other hand...

I think I'll try this (Friday or Saturday), but use some frozen Swiss Chard instead of spinach...

When I was a kid rhubarb was very important with the older folks in the family because it was the first growing thing we could bring in from the garden. They viewed it as a spring tonic and we had sauce as a side at every meal. I enjoy rhubarb pie but, I do not make it anymore. I do make rhubarb crisp and top it with vanilla ice cream. I am with you on not liking the strawberry rhubarb combinations. We never had them because the rhubarb came early and the strawberries were much later. We never used it any savory dishes that I can remember. Maybe you could try a rhubarb chutney.

Technically, it is a spring vegetable. However, in NA we seem to have made it into a dessert ingredient. I have made a rhubarb salsa. It was okay, I like my cranberry salsa better. I did find a number of Italian recipes for more savory rhubarb dishes and Eastern European, as well as Indian. So, I think I have a start point. I only have EIGHT plants with which to deal...

You can always send it to me! That is one thing I have trouble finding down here. I like it in pies and sauce with tapioca.

I should have a look for some. It makes lovely rødgrød (Danish, red, fruit pudding).

Knowing you, TL, it is probably not too sweet. Can you post the recipe? Maybe we can meet up in early June and I can share some of mine with you. Not at the farm on weekends right now since I'm moving to the house in the City.

I have never made it myself, but I could find you a recipe from my Danish cooking site.

We really do have to get together some time. I'm dying to meet you.

Yes, we do TL. I'm just busy moving and renovating, otherwise, if you were in C'wall this Sunday, I could've met up with you...sometime this summer!!! And yes, please, I'd love the recipe.
