Here is another great way to use your rhubarb. Make these delicious rhubarb bars. A sweet shortbread cookie topped with rhubarb curd. What a sweet treat to making using the tart rhubarb. This recipe is shared by Broma Bakery and not only is it delicious but it is very pretty too, with the red curd. This recipe makes a 9 x 13 pan of bars so you will have enough to share. Serve them as dessert or send them in lunches for work as a nice mid day treat.
You can make these as red or pink as you wish by how much food coloring you add and the cream cheese shortbread makes them just melt in your mouth. I love finding new ways to use the rhubarb I have growing in my garden. I have some in the freezer for use later in the year and I have made some jam but the rhubarb is still going strong so I made some of these bars and I am hoping there will be enough rhubarb to make them one more time because they were fantastic.
If you have rhubarb and are looking for new ways to use it you could try this Strawberry Rhubarb Freezer Jam Recipe or some Homemade Rhubarb Ice Cream, or this Homemade Rhubarb, Blueberry And Lime Jam and instead of tossing the leaves which are poisonous you can use them to make this Rhubarb Leaf Pesticide Spray to use in the garden.
