Quite often rhubarb is stewed to use in various rhubarb recipes, or recipes using rhubarb. A delicious alternative is to roast the rhubarb in the oven with a little orange juice and brown sugar. This roasting helps the rhubarb to keep its beautiful colour, it intensifies the flavour and retains the shape of the rhubarb rather than a mush. Once you have your roasted rhubarb use as you would in any recipe with stewed rhubarb or freeze.

The telling sign of fresh rhubarb is not only its bright color but the stalks should be firm and upright, the leaves a pale yellow never black.
