five ways with … a ton of rhubarb

November 20, 2017 at 8:00 am Leave a comment

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!)

Choclette’s Rustic Rhubarb Galette

Choclette’s rhubarb, rose and white chocolate ice cream

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

And finally a fab spirally path made with mosaic stepping stones using recycled materials like bottle tops, buttons and straws (from a show garden @bbcgwlive on 2005) #nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #gardenersworldlive #mosaicsteppingstones #mosaicart Beautiful show garden from @bbcgwlive 2005.  Wouldn't this make a fab addition to your allotment! Link in bio for more pictures 
#nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #allotmentgardening #paintedtyregardenplanters #paintedtyres #gardenersworldlive These fab painted tyre planters were part of a show garden at @bbcgwlive in 2005.  They're teaching me a thing or too about blog traffic as I try to get my head around SEO and why some posts have lots of hits and some have none.  2826 people have searched for painted tyres since I shared it in 2011 as a #wordlesswednesday post.  I've now added in some copy about the day and some of the other photos.  Just shows that adding useful titles to your images can be as helpful as writing relevant copy!

#gloucesterlife #indoorsnowplay #childhoodunplugged A funny little momento from our walk on Crosby beach - holding hands and gazing out to sea :0). #anotherplaceanthonygormley #nipitinthebudblog #visitingliverpool A conversation with @hoshistarhoshistarhoshistar today reminded me of a visit to Liverpool in 2010.  100 cast iron, life size figures spread out along three kilometres of Crosby beach and stretching one kilometre out to sea.  Spectacular.  It's worth checking tide times if you want to be able to walk along the beach.
