How To: Preserving Rhubarb

Its really important to take full advantage of product as it comes into season. As we now have an abundance of Rhubarb at the allotments, I am always looking for ways to preserve it.

I really want to make some Rhubarb and chilly chutney this year but as I am so busy at the allotment because we are in the throws of planting. So I don't have time to make the chutney right now.

I need to keep my Rhubarb to make it at a later date.

So here is how I freeze my Rhubarb, it could not be simpler!

Wash and trim the Rhubarb stalks and then wipe them dry with some kitchen paper.

Line a tray with parchment paper. Chop the Rhubarb stalks into approximately 1/2 inch pieces.

Arrange them on the tray and pop in the freezer.

Once frozen you can just put the Rhubarb pieces into a labelled and dated freezer bag.

Return to the freezer and then take what you need at a later date.

It can be stored in the freezer for up to a year!
