Hubby and I went out for a ride a few weeks ago, and he bought some rhubarb. While we made a fabulous dessert with a portion of the rhubarb, we had quite a bit leftover which we decided to freeze.

How To Freeze Rhubarb


• Wash the rhubarb and remove the leaves.

How To Freeze Rhubarb


• Dicing is the best choice – slit the rhubarb in half lengthwise, then slit each of the halves in half again. You are quartering, lengthwise.

How To Freeze Rhubarb


• Dice the rhubarb.

How To Freeze Rhubarb


• Bring several quarts of water to a rolling boil on the stove. I use a colander insert pot for ease of blanching, and draining.

• Bring water to a boil.
• Immerse a colander of rhubarb for 90 seconds to blanch.
• Remove blanched rhubarb, and allow to drain for at least 30 minutes before attempting to freeze. You want to be certain it isn’t very wet.

How To Freeze Rhubarb


• Hubby evenly divided the leftover rhubarb and bagged it.

How To Freeze Rhubarb


• Yes, he is serious about evenly dividing.
• We had approximately six cups leftover which is perfect for two recipes be it a pie or crisp.

How To Freeze Rhubarb


• Hubby put the rhubarb in a ziploc bag, the unzipped ziploc into a foodsaver bag. He then used his foodsaver on canister mode. At this point he sucked all the air out of the foodsaver bag which also squished all the air out of the ziploc bag. He quickly zipped closed the ziploc bag, and removed it from the foodsaver bag.

• The foodsaver bag never sealed because he never used the heating element, and he was able to suck all the air out of the ziploc bag!

• The bags are now labeled and ready for freezing. These will easily keep for 4-6 months

Clean Out The Fridge Loaf


The perfect recipe to make use of your remaining vegetables, grains and the hamburger left-over in your refrigerator. Easy to make, this turns out perfectly – and delicious – every time!

Clean Out The Fridge Loaf

Clean Out The Fridge Loaf


2 pounds ground beef (original recipe says beef, pork, chicken, turkey or veal ground or chopped)
1/4 c rye flour
1/4 c barley flour
1/2 c oatmeal (original recipe 1 c bread crumbs)
1 large egg
1/2 c chicken stock
2 cloves peeled garlic
1/2 tsp salt-free Spike
1/4 tsp dehydrated vegetable flakes (original recipe: seaweed, sea kelp or seas vegetable)
2 cups cooked vegetables

For the two cups of cooked vegetables, hubby used fresh carrots and fresh broccoli stalks cooked in extra chicken broth along with the vegetable flakes, garlic and salt-free Spike.

Then, he placed the ingredients into an oiled 9x5x3 meat loaf pan.

After this, bake in a preheated 350º oven for 45 minutes to 1 hour.

The loaf lifts right out when you use this pan, and the excess grease stays in the bottom.


Hubby bought this book: The Dog Ate It: Cooking for Yourself and Your Four-Legged Friends which contains recipes that are fit for humans and dogs at the same meal. Now, those of you that read this blog may know that our pooch, Max, is extremely spoiled. He does each PetFresh at least once per day, but his other two meals are people food. So, hubby figured he would give this book a try. The recipe above is based on one in this book.
