Now that fresh rhubarb is available I wanted to recommend This recipe.  It is really special.
I made it a couple days ago and it's the best recipe I've tried, the mixture of strawberries and rhubarb is just right; not too sweet and not too tart.  And the thickener keeps it from being too runny.

Linda,

Hmmm, not seeing much fresh rhubarb in the markets here (PNW). Do you grow your own?

No, I don't grow anything other than few herbs. The fresh locally grown rhubarb has been available in some of my nearby stores for a couple weeks now.
Odd that Portland wouldn't have any, surely some of you must like it.

That would make sense since your climate is a bit ahead of ours here.
Rhubarb is a bit of an old-fashioned product, probably more popular in the country.
I just bought another couple of pounds yesterday and it's resting comfortably in the freezer...the season is pretty short.
(Hey, I just learned that rhubarb is a vegetable and not a fruit.)

My father loved stewed rhubarb with his breakfast. Anything he loved, I loved, too. Haven't had it in years. If City Market has any this weekend, I'll try it again. Can't be too hard.

Our rhubarb went crazy this winter. I meant to harvest some and freeze it, but didn't. Now that I want it for strawberry/rhubarb hand pies, there are only a few skinny stems left and huge leaves. It is in a container which I think it has outgrown, so Steve is planning to find a place to put it in the ground. It will kill me to buy some. Anyway, if we ever get it back, I'll try the recipe. Thanks for the tip.

Alina, if you can talk yourself into buying only a pound you would have enough to make this recipe when cut back by a third, which is what I did. I wanted only enough to fit into a 2 qt. Pyrex baking dish (which is more than enough for me). I used just under a pound each of strawberries and rhubarb.
