Ingredients List

Whenever you make a cheesecake or any other dessert recipe from scratch, it is important to get the freshest ingredients. Fresh rhubarb tends to be juicier and full of flavour.

Helpful Pro Tips

Buying Fresh Rhubarb

There are two types of Rhubarb available, Hothouse Rhubarb and Farm or Field-grown Rhubarb. There are a few differences between the two and knowing what the differences are will help you make the best choice.

Field-grown or farm-grown Rhubarb is usually what you will find at your local farmer’s market or roadside stand.

Hothouse Rhubarb is usually what is trucked into your supermarkets.

Field or farm-grown rhubarb is easily distinguished by its dark red stalks. The flavour of field or farm-grown rhubarb is much stronger and has a more intense rhubarb flavour. Hothouse Rhubarb usually has a pink and more green on the stalk.

Rhubarb stalks should be firm. Firm rhubarb stalks mean that the stalks are not dried out. If you see limp or droopy stalks, do not purchase them. a firm stalk will be juicier and more flavourful than a limp one.

Look for Rhubarb with Shiny skin. This is also a good indicator of the freshness of the rhubarb. if the stalks appear dull they are past their peak. The nice shine or gloss on the stalk is a sign of freshness

Avoid rhubarb stalks that are starting to split or curl and drying out in the ends.

Freezing Rhubarb for future baking

I have frozen cut rhubarb in the past. The best way to freeze fresh rhubarb is to cut it and lay it on a parchment or wax paper-covered sheet pan and freeze it. Lay the rhubarb in a single layer, not touching each other. Once frozen place the frozen rhubarb into a large Ziploc freezer bag.

What is Stewed Rhubarb

In this recipe, we use stewed Rhubarb. Stewed rhubarb is nothing more than cooked rhubarb. Some people refer to it as rhubarb sauce. It is extremely easy to make and can be added to recipes or used as toppings on ice cream, cakes, and even meats. For homemade ice cream, just add a little stewed rhubarb with some crushed strawberries for a delicious Strawberry Rhubarb Ice Cream.

Stewed rhubarb can be stored in the refrigerator for up to a week in an airtight container.

Stewed rhubarb can also be frozen in an airtight container for future use.
