Freezing rhubarb is a great way to preserve it, but you want to make sure it stays in top quality while in the freezer.

Here are some tips for maintaining the quality of your frozen rhubarb.

USING FROZEN RHUBARB IN RECIPES Frozen rhubarb can be used in all your favorite recipes, from pies and cobblers to sauces and jams.

SHOULD I WASH RHUBARB BEFORE FREEZING? Give those stalks a good rinse under cold water to remove any dirt or bugs before chopping.

WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO PREPARE RHUBARB FOR FREEZING? Cut clean stalks into bite-sized pieces. Freeze them spread out on a tray first, then bag them up.

HOW DO YOU STORE AND PRESERVE RHUBARB? To keep it long-term, freeze it. For short stints, wrap fresh cuts in plastic and chill in the fridge.
