It's getting on in the season for rhubarb, but my clump is still going strong! It hasn't launched out any of those big seed head stalks, and I don't notice any change in the flavor, so I keep on cutting.
At a recent event at the store, Bear Patch Circle of Quilters, Jeanne shared her Rhubarb Muffins with everyone. They were a big hit! So here's her secret recipe:
Rhubarb Muffins from Jeanne T.
1 ½ cups flour
¾ cup brown sugar Topping: ½ cup brown sugar
½ tsp. baking soda ½ cup nuts
½ tsp. salt ½ tsp. cinnamon
1 cup diced rhubarb
½ cup buttermilk
½ cup oil
1 tsp. vanilla
In a large bowl, mix dry ingredients. In a small bowl mix egg, milk, oil and vanilla. Add to dry ingredients and mix only until blended. Fill paper lined muffin tins 2/3 full. Sprinkle with topping & press into batter. Bake at 375˚ for 20-25 minutes.
