It's Rhurbarb Time On The Farm

Our season has finally arrived .....

It's rhurbarb time!

Today I made a rhurbarb roll for desert

. Well I tried to make it to desert, but Justin got to it first, then Jill came home from school starving of course, and well..... The rest is history... This is what was left at desert time....

Rhurbarb Roll

Mix together
2cups flour
2 tsp. powder
1tsp. Salt
1/2 cup shortening
Add1/2 cup milk,and mix together. Roll out with rolling pin. Spread with butter on top of dough. Add 2cups finely chopped rhurbarb and 3/4 cups of white sugar, and 3 tsp. flour. Roll like jelly roll, and cut into 1/2 " pieces place in 9x 13 pan

Combine 1 cup of brown sugar and 1/2 cups of water in a pot and bring to a boil. Pour over roll, bake 45 mins at 350'

I took out a bag of strawberries out of the freezer and whipped up a strawberry rhurbarb pie.

Tonight I am starting to do up my bags for the freezer, and then I will begin our stewed rhurbarb preservers. Next week I will get a few batches of muffins made and a couple of new recipes I have found this year. One being rhurbarb dumplings from my blogging friend Donna over at Merry Heart Crafts. ( thanks Donna for sharing this with me)

If you have a favorite rhurbarb recipe you would love to share, I would love to have it to try.

Have a great day and enjoy your rhurbarb!


  1. Jessica, your dessert looks so yummy! I made Donna's rhubarb dumplings for the first time this week, and they were so good!

    A great day to you as well!


  2. I hope you like the dumplings. I just posted a rhubarb pie recipe that has been a favorite with us for years. I also have a rhubarb upside down cake recipe on there but I have not tried it as of yet. I would like to have your rhubarb muffin recipe. I am always looking for new things to try. Enjoy your day and God bless.

  3. I wanted to let you know I just made the rhubarb upside down cake. It is delicious! I think it would be a great cake with just about any type of fruit. God bless.
