Freeze Some

Another thing to remember…rhubarb is excellent when frozen. Simply chop fresh rhubarb into bite-size cubes, measure rhubarb cubes, place cubes into zip-lock freezer bags, write the amount and date on the front of the freezer bags and freeze for up to one year. No need to thaw frozen rhubarb before using in a recipe.
