Rhubarb season - Recipe Suggestions?

So it is rhubarb season here (in the UK) and I have it growing in abundance.

Rhubarb is one of those awkward fruits/vegetables(?) that is far too tart to eat as it comes so I'm hoping to get some inspiration for ways to cook/bake it up into something nice.

I've made some rhubarb pie which is going down a treat but still have a load of rhubarb waiting to be picked..Any recipe ideas you could offer up would be great?!

PS: Seasonal eating is the best! Food tastes so much better when grown naturally and eaten this way. Plus less air miles/pesticides. Big reccommendation to grow your own if you can.

Hi! I have just picked and cooked my first rhubarb of this season. Served it with vanilla custard and made some sponges for the freezer. I too am looking for ideas. Am going to check out recipes for jam and some kind of chutney thing.

There is joy and beauty in everything around us, just take time to see it!

Rhubarb sponges sound lovely, I've not made them into a cake before actually so may try that.

A compote or jam would be a good call, don't have to use it right away either which is a bonus..Although with jam I never get it to set right (Tried with gooseberries last year and was more like a soup than a jam ahhh!)

Have just made a rhubarb date and ginger chutney Chrissy. I found the recipe on the internet. There seems to be quite a lot of good stuff to be found. looks like a lot of peeps have an over abundance of rhubarb.
