FREEZE RHUBARB… AND TAKE A BITE OUT OF CLIMATE CHANGE!
This week’s Take A Bite Out of Climate Change action is to FREEZE RHUBARB! Those that take this action, and provide photographic “evidence” (by the end of the weekend) will be entered into our weekly prize draw! Photos can be submitted via email to [email protected] or via Facebook on the Eat Local Caledon Facebook page.
Rhubarb freezes well and can be used year-round by taking a few steps in spring/early summer, while it is abundant. Here are the directions… quick and easy!
1. Wash and trim ends and leaves off rhubarb so that the useable stalk remains for freezing.
2. Cut into ½ to 1 inch pieces and place on baking sheet to dry.
3. Put into either container or plastic bag for freezing. If using bag, use a straw to remove all of the air and create an air-tight seal.
4. Use year-round in baking and sauces as needed.
