  • 1 bunch fresh rhubarb


  • Pick your rhubarb. (Or pick up a bunch from the farmer's market or store.)
  • Discard the leaves if the stalks have leaves.
  • Wash well and trim any rough ends. Slice into thin pieces.
  • Place into a zip top freezer bag and press flat to remove as much air as possible and to spread the rhubarb out in one even layer. Seal.
  • Place bag onto a small baking sheet and freeze for at least 4 hours.
  • Remove the baking sheet and store the bag flat or upright. Measure out frozen rhubarb in any recipe you like.
