When slender stalks of rhubarb debut every spring, bakers and dessert lovers are overjoyed. Pies, cobblers, and crisps can’t be far behind. Rhubarb’s tart, distinctive flavor and ruby-red color bring new life to desserts and sweet treats, including galettes, tarts, fools, jams, compotes, chutney, and even drinks.

  • Recipe

    Rhubarb Brown Sugar Crumble

    A generous amount of oatmeal streusel tops this rhubarb crumble, providing a crunchy contrast to the tart, juicy filling.
  • Recipe

    Rhubarb Jam with Lime & Ginger

    This tangy jam is delicious on toast, but if you feel inspired, stir it into oatmeal or yogurt; use it as a topping over pancakes, waffles, or cheesecake; or go savory and use it as a glaze on roast chicken or duck.
  • Recipe

    Rhubarb Chutney

    This savory-leaning chutney is a great accompaniment to a pork roast, chicken, or oily fish like salmon, and works equally well on a cheese board.
  • Recipe

    Strawberry-Rhubarb Pie

    Spring strawberries and rhubarb are a classic combination, best showcased, in what else? A glorious, flaky double-crust pie. Bring this along to the first cookout of the season, and you won't be sorry.
  • Recipe

    Rhubarb-Ginger Sparkler

    When rhubarb is in season in early spring, make the most of its tart flavor with this spicy, pale pink cocktail. It’s easy to scale up, making it perfect for a brunch or as a signature wedding drink.
  • Recipe

    Roasted Rhubarb & Ginger Streusel Tart

    Roasting rhubarb deepens its flavor, and the large pieces, while tender, hold their shape better than slices. Its still-tart flavor perfectly contrasts the sweet, buttery brown sugar in the streusel.
  • Recipe

    Cinnamon-Rhubarb Muffins

    Sour cream, a bit of a surprise ingredient, adds richness to these muffins, but it’s the juice released by the rhubarb that makes them so tender and moist that you can still serve them the next day.
  • Recipe

    Strawberry-Rhubarb Fool

    This old-fashioned English dessert is foolproof: it’s only a matter of folding a quickly cooked compote into whipped cream. A little rose water adds a floral sweetness, but the fool is lovely without it, too.
  • Recipe

    Rhubarb Compote with Oranges & Figs

    The acidity of many citrus fruits—particularly oranges—goes well with rhubarb, so this compote is a stunning combination of flavors and colors. You can serve it chilled with cookies, or warm over vanilla ice cream.
  • Recipe

    Rhubarb-Raspberry Galette

    Rhubarb with strawberries is a time-honored combination, but raspberries actually stand up better than strawberries to the heat of the oven, so they’re perfect in this easy-as-pie galette.
  • Recipe

    Rhubarb-Ginger Fool

    Rhubarb loves ginger. In this fool, ginger gives it just the zing it needs to stand out.
  • Recipe

    Rhubarb & Dried-Cherry Chutney

    Rhubarb isn’t just for sweets and dessert. This rhubarb chutney makes a lovely condiment for grilled pork loin or roasted chicken.
  • Recipe

    Strawberry-Rhubarb Cobbler

    In this rustic dessert, the sweet-tart rhubarb is flavored with and mellowed by clover honey.
  • Recipe

    Lattice-Top Rhubarb Pie

    Strawberry and rhubarb may be classic pie partners, but rhubarb can fly solo, too. This pie is deliciously fresh, tart, and light.
