The Rhubarb Rally!

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
1 egg
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.

"Discovered" an incredible cookbook this summer, The Joy of Rhubarb by Theresa Millang. I tried eight different recipes from this book, everything from applesauce rhubarb muffins, to bread, to pie, to jams, even rhubarb ice tea, which was really delicious. It is published by Adventure Press of Cambridge. Not sure if you can get it new, but I know it is available on the used book website
