The Rhubarb plants grown on Brooklands Farm have been growning for over 140 years. It is the original variety planted in the 1800’s when our family settled the land.
This variety was carefully salvaged and multiplied from the original clumps on the farm. The stalks are very red and delicious.
Our favourite way of eating rhubarb is in crumbles, pies, cooked into a “stew” with sugar and a dash of vanilla. Rhubarb goes well with strawberries and apples.
Rhubarb freezes well. All you have to do is pick it, wash it, chop it up into inch-sized pieces, bag it and freeze it! Then when the berry season starts, you can make all sorts of delicious recipes.
