Rhubarb Rhubarb

Tucked away at the bottom of the garden, there's the most massive rhubarb patch I've ever seen.  When I tried to grow rhubarb at the old house, it always fared badly because the leaves always got munched away by the slugs and snails so the stalks never really grew that big.  But here, its a different situation altogether as the natural predators seem to have kept any slugs and snails in check and the rhubarb flourishes.

Fortunately we love rhubarb and have been enjoying rhubarb and apple crumbles, rhubarb muffins, rhubarb compote (delicious with creamy Greek yogurt and Mr Cocopopia says it adds an extra kick to his weetabix, muesli and yogurt combo he has for dessert in the evenings).  

I also found a great recipe for rhubarb and ginger jam here on the Farmers Girl Kitchen blog.  So simple with only 4 ingredients and no fancy jam-making equipment required.  Absolutely gorgeous jam!
