More I've Got Lots of Rhubarb/ Strawberries

A refreshing rain

It's raining cats and dogs today! The air smells fabulous. I have been up since 3:30am(hormones!).....yawn! Amazing what you can do in the quiet....I decided to put on a big jacket with a hood and tromp(shall I say wade?)out to the rhubarb. Yesterday I picked up some yummy strawberries and so this morning I thought strawberry rhubarb muffins would be nice. I searched through my Rolodex of recipes sure that I had a good recipe in there somewhere, sigh...I seem to have not saved one. The problem with the wonderful world of Internet recipes is that I try something new, don't write it down...and then can never find it again! So, I decided to take a few recipes and combine them. Here it is...enjoy!

Rhubarb Strawberry Muffins
3 cups flour
1 cup sugar
1 Tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups sour cream(you can use plain yogurt)
2 large eggs
1/2 cup melted marg or butter
1 1/2 cup rhubarb
1 cup strawberries
Mix the wet, add the dry, toss the fruit in the dry, don't over mix. Bake at 375 for 25 minutes.
I am testing one as I blog...they are wonderful...I tried cutting back on the sugar and then are still tasty.

Recipe makes 12
I had to sample!

Oh!!! I almost forgot! Feta Cheese is on sale at Costco this week(sales usually change Mondays). It's the lowest I have ever tracked it! 1kg $8.79(regular price is $11.99)!!!!! If you click on the picture you can zoom in and see that it is good(unopened) until April 2012!!! I stocked up! I guess you'll be hearing about feta cheese recipes shortly!

I've Got Lots of Rhubarb

Rhubarb Compote

This lovely compote is easy to make(thanks mom for the recipe!)and soooo good for you! I cut up 8 stalks of rhubarb. I whirled it up in the food processor(not an exact science!!!try it you will know what I mean!) and then put it in a glass bowl in the microwave.This is a much easier, burn free method! All I did was cook it on high 2 minutes, stir it and then did it again. In the end it cooked up to this lovely sauce. Because I had food processed it, some of the liquid was released, so I didn't need to add any. If you want to cut it up by hand you can just add a tiny bit of water before you microwave it. Afterwards I added about a 1/4 cup of honey. It has a really nice taste plain, but you may want to add a sweetener. We had this large bowl at lunch and there is less than a small serving left! Tasty, easy, good for you, and free!

Rhubarb Bake Filling

Rhubarb Bake

Here's another great user upper of rhubarb! You may remember me modifying it for plums awhile back.This recipe calls for 4 cups!
First you make the rhubarb filling.
4cups rhubarb(fresh or frozen)
1 cup granulated sugar
2 Tbsp cornstarch
1 tsp orange rind
In a medium saucepan, stir together the above. Cook over medium heat 5 mins for fresh and 15 minutes for frozen. STIR CONSTANTLY. Let cool.
Next make the base and topping by combining the following:
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup chopped nuts
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
Then use 2 knives or pastry cutter to cut in 1/2cup of soft butter. When done reserve 1 cup of this mixture. Take the rest and spread evenly in a square pan. Pour the rhubarb filling over and sprinkle with the reserved mixture.  Bake at 350 for 35 to 40 minutes. It freezes really nice and can be kept frozen for months! A great treat for lunches or picnics! Enjoy!

What do you like to do with lots of rhubarb?
