five ways with … a ton of rhubarb

November 20, 2017 at 8:00 am 7 comments

So it may well be the wrong time of year to post this since your rhubarb harvest will be far from your thoughts. But hey, let’s pretend I’m being really organised for next Spring when your rhubarb crown will be re-birthing after winter and at it’s finest! If you find yourself wondering what to do with the ton of rhubarb I hope you’ll end up with here are a few suggestions from the archives (sigh, from the good old days of having an abundant harvest from the allotment!)

This post has spent 5 years in drafts waiting to be finished!  The first three suggestions are my own nipitinthebud makes but growing small boys stalled any efforts to complete the post with some delicious rhubarb bakes.  So having been inspired by my husbands musical collaborations this month I decided to ask my friend Choclette at Tin and Thyme if I could feature some of her terrific rhubarb recipes.  I knew she’d come up trumps and if these ideas have whet your appetite be sure to check out her archives – she has enough suggestions for a ”10 ways with a ton of rhubarb” post!  Enjoy x

2018 update – fellow allotment blogger Zoe at Zoe’s Garden Prints, who created my fab blog banner using her allotment alphabet, has produced a gorgeous illustrated recipe card for rhubarb and almond muffins that is simply too wonderful not to share.  Zoe is happy for you to download and print the recipe to use in your home kitchen or you can buy the print from her Etsy shop (all items are printed with long-lasting inks onto archive quality photo paper which means it won’t fade and will look good on your kitchen wall for years).

How to get your kids to eat your home made casserole? Cover it with their favourite #cullyandsullyuk chicken soup. Winner!
I learnt a new word today and if there was an emoji for it then it would be this! PIZZLED, when your pissed off and puzzled all at the same time. Thank you #rubywaxfrazzled for the language education and Euan for the always hilarious faces (he was 4 years old and eating lunch out with his new 2 month old baby brother so his face could be saying all sorts of things!) #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
I don't suppose many people recall the exact date they found out they were pregnant or have a photo to mark their total delight. 15/8/15 we found out our second miracle Luca was on his way. We'd become second time parents in our 40s and 22 years after we started dating. Our boys were so worth the painful years of waiting. (And our picture to mark the occasion is thanks to Mum and Dad babysitting Euan so we could go to a friend's wedding evening do.)

It's so hard to grieve the loss of your Mum when just looking in the mirror each morning reminds you of what you're missing. Dad always said "thankfully you get your looks from your Mum" with a cheeky twinkle in his eye.
Regrann from @the_tightrope_walker - Emotional Impact 🎗. “CCLG parent survey reveals the emotional impact of childhood cancer.” I read an article by @cclg_uk ; it highlights many of the daily feelings that most parents & carers experience after a child is diagnosed with cancer. We have been unbelievably blessed to have had fantastic support around us since Dylan was diagnosed. The parents at school devised a meal rota & every Friday for months someone would drop over a week’s worth of home cooked food for us to put in the freezer. The amount of pressure that took away from us was immense; we would often be in hospital on rotation with Dylan overnight so it really helped...it particularly helped Ruari as Nick & I were often not home until late 💔. Whilst we are surrounded by wonderful friends & people who bend over backwards to help there is still an indescribable darkness that hangs over you once you receive the news that your child has cancer. Emotions are often unpredictable as are the minutes, hours & days. Some days you feel able to talk, other days you just don’t want to get out of bed such is the weight that you carry around constantly. This article touches on so many subtleties & there is little I don’t identify with. The sense of loneliness & isolation, the stress & crippling anxiety, the grief at the loss of a “normal” life, the lack of awareness, the things people say that cut through you...it goes on. The article also highlights the improvement needed in focusing on the parents & carers who are going through horrendous emotional & psychological battles whilst watching their child being treated for cancer. There is such a long list of unseen side effects besides the side effects of the treatments that these children have to endure in order to hopefully be cured. Childhood cancer affects absolutely everything; life really is never the same again & whilst we all wait for our “new normal” we’re still working out how to come to terms with losing the old normal & dealing with perpetual shock. If you have a moment, please read it (link in bio). You never know who might benefit from this kind of awareness. #ccam #livingwithcancer #emotionalimpact #childhoo
3 years of first day at a school photos. How is this little guy growing up so fast - nearer 7 years old than 6! #lovethisboy💙 #nipitinthebudblog
This morning's special time/art therapy with E 💕
I've been living in this t-shirt for the last week. The lovely Jo @drift.n.dream made it for me to go with E's rainbow t-shirt and I'd planned to write a blog post about the joy of rainbow babies after loss. Instead it's soft cosiness has been comforting me through the loss of my Mum at a time when it can be hard to even leave the house. I think I may well have to get more custom orders done with encouraging little mantras on - what would you choose?
I'm making @seasonalshaheen 's spicy tomato chutney today with allotment grown tomatoes (details on the blog). I love this recipe as it's great if left to mature but also good straight away, especially as a base cheese on toast or pizzas. #nipitinthebudblog #allotmentgardening #chutneyaddict
When you have special time with one boy and the other decides Daddy isn't all that interesting and falling asleep on the bathroom floor is a better option! @hand_in_hand_parenting #nipitinthebudblog
