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!
