Yesterday I got some rhubarb from my neighbor so I decided to try this rhubarb cheese cake recipe and it was delicious. It was my Great Aunt's birthday so I took it with me to the party and it went over very well. So anyway here it is...
|This is the first cheesecake I've ever made|
|and a slice|
So I got about 5 pounds of rhubarb I'm going to make a strawberry rhubarb pie as well but that only takes a pound and the cake took just under a pound so I decided to freeze the rest. Now when you freeze rhubarb you should cut it up and freeze it on a cookie sheet before putting it in freezer bags.
|Here is the rhubarb with the bottom and top trimmed off I did this outside at my mums to avoid making a mess inside|
|Here it is just out of the freezer, I chopped it up and laid it out on this cookie sheet with plastic wrap between the layers. Doing this prevents your rhubarb from freezing in a solid block you should do this with berries and banana slices as well.|
|I'm freezing it in 1 pound lots as that is what most recipes call for|
|I learned the hard way to always mark everything before you put it in the freezer.|
