|The Rhubarb has been over ran with grass and it is coming to the end of summer so I am starting to process it.|
|The leaves must go. They are poisonous. So throw them away. Don't feed them to the chickens...|
|Looks like alot less after taking the tops off but there is still a good amount there.|
|Next comes cleaning and trimming away of all spots and imperfections in the stalk. If the stalks are stringy or woody, peel. While you are doing this bring a big pan of water to a boil.|
|They will freeze in a couple hours.|
(Notice I forgot to remove the paper towl before freezing it.. Not the best idea it sticks.. )
|Now all that is left to do is bag and label with date & amount. This will keep in the freezer for 9 to 12 months.|
I processed the first bunch of a little over 2 pounds. Which was 6 1/2 cups.
