Recipes Using Rhubarb:

Read my blog post for tips on freezing rhubarb.

  • Blueberry Rhubarb Jam- Since rhubarb and blueberries may not be in season together, freeze rhubarb in the spring to make this delicious jam in the summer.
  • Apple Rhubarb Jam- This jam has a wonderful fall taste and is perfect mixed into oatmeal. Another recipe worth freezing some rhubarb for.
