Rhubarb, by j


Last week we were gifted with some lovely rhubarb.

FYI: I love rhubarb. For reals.

So, I took the bounty that we received, and made some lovely stuff.

First, rhubarb muffins.

The recipe is from Ina Garten (and yes, there is a half pound of butter in there).

Here’s what it looked like:


2 cups of delicious (if a bit green) rhubarb.


Here’s the batter.


In the oven.


Ta da!


3 c. of flour
1 tbsp baking powder
.5 tsp baking soda
.5 tsp salt
1.5 cinnamon
1.25 c. Milk
2 extra large eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 butter, melted
2 c. Rhubarb
1.5 c. Sugar


Preheat the oven to 375.

Sift dry ingredients.

Mix milk, melted butter, eggs. Add to dry ingredients, and fold until just combined.

Add in rhubarb and sugar.

Scoop into muffin pan, bake for 15-20 minutes.

Well, then I wanted to try something else…my favourite, stewed rhubarb. Stewed rhubarb is fabulous. Deliciously pink. Yum.

Except when it turns out like this:



Don’t let the color fool you. It’s delicious.

Here it is:


Cut up rhubarb and put into fancy pot.



Add in water. Note: this is waaaaay too much water. There was some alteration done.


Add sugar.

It may be bright green, but it really is delicious. I swear.


About weywardsisters

The Three Weyward Sisters first appeared in Shakespeare’s “Macbeth”. It turns out we have more in common with these “weird” sisters than we thought. In the Shakespeare play the sisters represent darkness, chaos and conflict. We’ll leave it up to you to decide which of us represents each. They also usually show up to mark impending doom. Well, we certainly hope that our presence on this little corner of the Interwebs doesn’t mean impending doom for anyone. However, we find our commonalities with the witches in other ways. To be weyward means to be willful, disobedient and to turn away from what is “right or proper”. Those who know us would whole heartedly agree – we are three weyward sisters. We are three headstrong, stubborn (some more than others), obstinate and willful sisters. Read at your own risk.
