Creative and Delicious Rhubarb Recipes

Eric Ginsburg

I didn't try rhubarb until I went to college. Or at least, I remember being a little confused by what this stalky vegetable was, though I may've tasted it in a cobbler or other dish at a younger age and forgotten (or not realized).

Ironically, I grew up in the northeast where rhubarb grows better than North Carolina, where I moved for college. But being around a bunch of crunchy farmers market-type students meant a greater awareness of foods outside my own home, and a broader exposure to ingredients that fell outside the "yellow foods" category one classmate made fun of me for loving. (In reality this included a range of browns and similar shades, but you get the gist — it was all about carbs and cheese.)

Rhubarb is a somewhat tart vegetable with iconic pinkish, crimson red color on its stalks. It's often paired with strawberry, both because they balance each other and enrich the red color of a dish or drink.

If you've got a rhubarb haul and aren't quite sure what to do with it, you've come to the right place. Maybe you want to make a classic cobbler or rhubarb crumble, or alternately want to try something new, like ginger rhubarb muffins or — my personal favorites — rhubarb lemon macarons or a strawberry rhubarb twist on a mint julep.

There's something here for everyone. So what are you waiting for?
