How to freeze rhubarb
And if you still have too much, you can always freeze it for the winter. Having frozen rhubarb to bake into a strawberry rhubarb crisp in the middle of winter is a treat!
- To freeze extra rhubarb, first remove the leaves (as they are toxic) and discard. Wash the stalks, dry thoroughly, then chop into pieces about ½ to 1-inch long.
- Spread the pieces out on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper (for easy removal) and place the sheet in your freezer for 4 to 6 hours, or even overnight.
- Once frozen, remove the pieces the tray and pack them into zipper-top freezer bags and label with the date. You can remove the air by sucking it out with a straw.
Frozen rhubarb will last up to a year--right to next year's crop!
