Make the Hairy Bikers rhubarb and vanilla freeze from the Curry book. It's lovely and so refreshing, having a glassful now to cool me down. Can PM you recipe if interested.

My tummy is seriously rumbling after all this. No time to make cakes tonight but tomorrow's a different story.

Cheers all!

rhubarb and orange go well together - my mum used to make a lovely pastry flan thing with rhubarb and an orangey custard - lovely hot or cold.

I also rilly rilly fancy making rhubarb fool.

And maybe some rhubarb gin or suchlike, if possible.

Ah I was wondering if I could just freeze it straight off - didn't know if it needed blanching at all. That's great news, I can pop the bulk in the freezer and just use a bit now.

Rhubarb and custard cake sounds deeeeeeelish! I saw someone else had mentioned a rhubarb and orange cake but I've not got around to looking it up yet. Also intrigued by rhubarb and cornmeal cake - never made a cornmeal or polenta cake so quite fancy giving that a try.

In fact I suppose I might have enough to do all of them!

This is very nice.

Google nigella's rhubarb and cornmeal cake. I love it - requires plain yog (can use any I think) and cornmeal/polenta, or semolina will do.

DS made a rhubarb pie from the BBC recipes today -looks very nice and used about that amount.

It can, once washed and cut, be frozen for use later.
Or try googling the bbc's rhubarb and custard cake, which is very tasty. it only uses about 4 sticks, mind you!

Anyone got any good rhubarb cake recipes? I have 700g of the stuff (fresh, not stewed) and was thinking a cake might be a good idea.
