Rhubarb-Lake Avenue House B&B
Picked our first Rhubarb for the year yesterday, made a Rhubarb Crumble using the Recipe I posted here last year, just lovely. This is a new bed of Rhubarb I started about 2 years ago, great to see it doing so well. I found a Rhubarb Muffin Recipe that I have been dying to try out, hope to make it next week. If successful it would be a new item to add to our Bed and Breakfast menu.
Rhubarb is in season now, and growing very well in the garden of Lake Avenue House. It is so easy to use, just pick, wipe, chop-that’s it ready to go. I find Rhubarb Crumble one of the easiest recipes to make. I usually cook this when I have something in for the dinner, a lovely treat with a spoonful of cream or ice cream.
