Rhubarb Desserts

Did you get a good rhubarb crop this year? I was surprised to see how much I got even with all the spring snow and rain.

I would like to know what you are making with your rhubarb.

If you have a good rhubarb recipe you would like to share, email it to me at or mail your recipe to P.O. Box 9, Minneota, MN 56264.

I’m looking forward to hearing from you. Here is my recipe I would like to share.

Rhubarb Angel Dessert

  • 2 quarts rhubarb, diced
  • 1 1/2 cup sugar
  • 4 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 (3 ounce) package raspberry gelatin
  • 1 (4 1/2 ounce) carton of whipped topping
  • 1 (10-inch) angel food cake, tear into small pieces

1) Combine rhubarb, sugar and lemon; cook over medium heat until rhubarb is soft and sugar is melted. Add gelatin and stir until dissolved.

2) Chill until starts to thicken. Fold in whipped topping. Put 1/2 cake pieces in 9 x 13 dish, pour 1/2 of mixture over it, and add the rest of the cake and mixture. Refrigerate overnight.

Recipe notes: If you don’t like raspberry gelatin, substitute strawberry.
