I love rhubarb. Some people put on weight during the holiday season, I put on weight during rhubarb season. I just can help myself from buying bunches of it at the farmer’s market. Once I have it, I can’t help but make pies. The problem is, I am the only one in the house who really enjoys rhubarb + anything pies, and I always end up eating the entire thing in just a couple of sittings. So, in an attempt to maintain control, I froze a bunch of chopped rhubarb so that I can space out the pies a bit. However, I did make the mistake of trying some strawberry rhubarb preserves using this recipe with slightly less sugar.
Paired with butter and homemade bread (with this recipe, substituting honey for sugar) — I’m in trouble again. And, I haven’t even attempted my mother-in-law’s amazing rhubarb custard dessert, because I know that would be too much for me to resist.
