Rhubarb is such a classic taste of spring, and we're always a little sad when the season starts to wind down. But it doesn't have to be goodbye until next year! Try freezing some to enjoy all winter long with these easy steps:
1. Trim off leaves (they are actually poisonous!) and about an inch from the bottom of the stalk.
2. Wash and dry thoroughly and chop into chunks about an inch thick.
3. Transfer chunks of rhubarb into a freezer-friendly zipper storage bag and place in the freezer.
There you have it! Easy as 1-2-3 :) Freezing fresh produce when it's at peak season is a great way to ensure your winter diet stays full of variety & health.
We also freeze some here on-farm so feel free to drop by any time!
