Radical Rhubarb!



Rhubarb Slush!
This recipe is from a Dear Dear family friend Pat Green.  Iím writing it differently so we can all remember how it goes and adding a Joanne presto chango to it:  rhubarb slush leather!  Read the fruit leather blog to fill in the gaps as Iím going to rush through this process pretty quickly.  Here we go:

Ok first, Hereís the recipe - its as easy as counting to 5!

1 9x13 pan
2 cups of sugar
3 cups of water
4 cups of rhubarb
5 minutes boiled

He he heÖ do you love the way that flows?
1.  The rhubarb needs to be washed & cut into bits.
2.  Add sugar, water and rhubarb to a large pot and boil for 5 minutes. 
3.  Pour into blender and puree until smooth.  From here you have some choices.

Fruit Leather Option
1.  Place in sunshine until dried.
2. Cut into strips with a pizza cutter or scissors and roll up.

Slush Option
1.  Pour smooth rhubarb into casserole pan or bar pan and freeze.   Hint: The thinner layer the faster it will freeze.  Once frozen you can also take to a party in a gallon baggie as a gift or treat.

2.  Once frozen, chop into cubes, serve with a spoon or as the ice cream in a Sprite or Fresca float.  Its all delightful, especially on a hot summer day!

I hope you find this easy recipe delightful and refreshing and convenient too! I wish you the best and happy savings till next time! 

- Joanne

Can you do this with other fruits? I'm not a fan of rhubarb, but this sounds like it would be good with other fruits.

Yes, Mike! It works great with peaches, apples, pears, etc.
