Best thing to do with rhubarb is put it straight into the compost heap

Rhubarb wine comes to mind:

I do love Rhubarb crumble.

Rhubarb wine?

Rhubarb wine? has recipes for a no-cook version and a cooked version.

I make rhubarb kimchi - depends on whether lacto-fermented things are your style, but I love it; lots of recipes around online but the main thing is to have a good few chunks of crystalised ginger in there and a decent quantity of heat (via gochugaru or whatever chilli/flakes/powder you might have on hand), for me.

Debster - of course the leaves can go there, but only because the hens cannot eat them.

delcatto - I think our days of home-made wine are over. We still have the demijohns, but I fear for my tastebuds these days. Crumble on the other hand is a definite yes (rolled oats plus ground almonds, ginger, cinammon, and a splodge of honey stirred together make a good gluten-free topping).

Tamson - kimchi has never really appealed. Accidentally eating going-off/fermenting salad tomatoes probably put paid to that. But, on looking up recipes, just in case I could be tempted, I stumbled upon other ideas, such as green rhubarb sorbet, so thanks!

I am so going to try this savoury recipe.

The kids are all moved out, and making rhubard crumble two just doesn't feel right...
