Spring has finally arrived and that means the arrival of all of the delicious spring produce! Rhubarb is always a special treat. It grows like crazy even though it only produces for a short window of time. Rhubarb is one of those plants that is incredibly easy to grow and will continue to come back and produce year after year. It’s a great way to add another vegetable to your garden and to your diet.

Now if you’ve made it to the end of this list and tried all of the easy rhubarb recipes that your family would enjoy but you STILL have more rhubarb to use up, you can always start Canning Rhubarb!
