Try farm foods for frozen rhubarb if you have one near, they always have it

Farmfoods is definitely the place! £1 for 750g, pre sliced and frozen. In the microwave for 4/7 minutes! Lush.

I would have stewed rhubarb within 48hours. Asda usually have the frozen tubs in too. I'm ordering some rhubarb crowns for the garden as I'd much rather have my own, enormous, cheap supply :D

I have rubarb in the garden but its quite at the moment - thank god cos i get 3 massive crops a year. It is too easy to grow - just put it in and there you have it. I end up having to split the crown every tear cos its so big ! Maybe a friend would split theirs with you to save a few quid??? Only thing is that you should not harvest in the first year as it will affect subsequent harvests.
