Recently a friend of mine brought me some rhubarb plants. She had bought more than she needed so passed these along to me. I went to plant them and noticed that my rhubarb plant had shot out and was growing after the rains we had.
I’m so excited about these!! Anytime anyone wants to share rhubarb, I’m you girl!!
I picked some rhubarb and went to the house to make something with it. I like trying new recipes and Hubby is a great food tester. He’ll try anything. He’s a real trouper and finishes most everything too…so to the recipe books I went. I got the Mississippi Valley Quilter’s cookbook and decided to try the first recipe I had all the ingredients for no matter if it sounded odd.
This is the recipe I found.
I’ve apparently not made a cobbler before because as I went along, I was sure this wouldn’t turn out….PLEASE NOTE I DOUBLED THE RECIPE THAT’S WHY MY PAN IS 9 x 13.
First I put the rhubarb down. Then I put the batter down and it would barely cover the rhubarb…then cover it with a sugar mix….
..and then pour two cups of water over the top. I took pictures because it seemed so weird!
How can this globby mess turn into anything???
….but an hour later I had this….
and an hour after that, I had this. Oh my YUMMY!!! This is the new rhubarb recipe that is here to stay. Man-oh-man this is good.
Hubby declared it his new favorite. We both laughed as we were both sure there was misprint or typo in the recipe. No way did it sound or seem like it would turn out!!
