Easy instructions for dehydrating
rhubarb coming up! But first, did you know that: Rhubarb is a good
source of vitamin A, and vitamin C, followed by Folate, and Choline.
As far as minerals go, rhubarb is a fantastic source of Potassium
and Calcium, followed by Phosphorus with trace amounts of Selenium,
Iron, Manganese, and Zinc!
Rhubarb also contains Omega-6 fatty acids.
Dehydrated rhubarb is great for pies, desserts, and tarts.
As a kid, I remember going to the back garden and even
nipping over the neighbor's fence – to break off stalks of rhubarb,
(the shame of it), and then rush home with it ... Maybe this is something I should consider growing myself ... then I don't have to scale walls and fences and get skinned knees! Back in the kitchen with my goodies, I dipped the ends
into sugar, and ate it raw. OMG. I used to eat too much of it and ended
up with a stomach ache!
When my dad was a kid, he and his friends used to call it "yunky" – and that's meant in a good way – though he can't for the life of him remember why they called it
How to Dehydrate Rhubarb
- Rinse in water and then slice your rhubarb into 1" chunks
- Steam your rhubarb until it is slightly tender
- Place the rhubarb on your food dehydrator trays
- Turn on your dehydrator and set the temperature between 125°F and 135°F
(or per your food dehydrator's instructions).
- Drying time: between 6-14 hours
- Dehydrated rhubarb will feel leathery when dried.
- Remember to rotate your food dehydrator trays, for even drying.
Great Rhubarb in the UK!
As mentioned above about my having
rhubarb in the neighbor's yard, I do recall having some growing in our
own yard too – it's that 'grass is greener on the other side' syndrome?
LOL Anyway, just wanted to say that living
in the UK, with plentiful rain, and 'some sun', they sure had perfect
I'm comparing this to where I live now, in sunny hot central Florida. When you get older, you realize that when you were young that you didn't even know that something as special as fresh rhubarb would become something to NOT take for granted. Rhubarb in our local grocery store is not cheap, so when it's in season at the store, I get busy dehydrating rhubarb!
