      • i have no idea what you are speaking of … updated now with answer, is rhubarb. i can’t get enough of this stuff. my farm boss’s wife gave me some of hers last year and it is going great. i just shoved it in ground where my irises are and voila.

  3. if you can’t grow i will send you some canned for pies or cobblers omg it is so good, i will eat a whole pie lolol

    • Oh, Awwwwwwww, Rhubarb ???….Leaves are poisonous, ( Some makes garden & bugs spray from them ), yes, we have them growing here, old folks makes pies of it also, but I never touch the stuff I don’t know or trust or am not sure how to cook it….

      April 18, 2013 at 11:03 am

      • omg, you don’t know what you are missing. all you use are the stalks, ditch the leaves into compost, or make your bug spray … i’ll put up recipe for you soon as i find it, its easy. i puree mine some people don’t. for the kids i mix with strawberries as pie. is kind of funky pink color, so if giving as gift i add touch of red to make it pretty.

        April 18, 2013 at 11:08 am

  4. If I would have seen the red stock standing, ( Like on the videos now ), I would have said KOHIL-RABI or RHUBARB 😀

    • lol 🙂 well it just started coming up so those are my garden pics. i tell you for a minute when i seen i was wondering what is this?? then it hit me, is what prompted the “i spy” post 😛

      April 18, 2013 at 11:10 am

      • The picture is very confusing ( Silly me ) 😀
        Great for guess tho….Going to the next , LILAC ??

      • ok quick recipe, i’ll put pie and cobbler recipes up when i get them off my other pc. the one with all my recipes crashed and is only good for storage now, like a external hard drive.

        1 pound fresh rhubarb, cut the leaves and end of stem off
        trim in half-inch pieces (or more depending on how much you have to harvest)
        1-1/2 cups water (just enough to cover well)
        2 cups sugar (to start, add more if needed to taste)
        1/4 – 1/3 cup lemon juice (again depending on how much you are making)
        cook it down
        i smash mine as it cooks with potato masher
        when it looks “right” i cool it off over night and then check thickness
        reheat it and add pectin as needed (you don’t need as much for pies and cobbler as jam)
        natural pectin pouch ( 1 or 2 as needed for viscosity, depending on how much you are making)
        use puree stick (or blender to make sure it is smooth
        (you don’t have to puree but i like to, the smaller the stalks the less stringy it is)
        can it up with hot water bath canning method

        it is tart, so if you desire more sweetness add fresh strawberries (not store bought). i do that for the kids, strawberry/rhubarb 😉

  5. Very easy …Thanks.
    Some friends at work, gave me some jars of beetroot cobbler …Never had it before, now I LOVE IT. I can’t wait to cook some my self now…Same simple, straight recipe like yours…Sugar and lemon for individual taste/s…I like it a bit sweet.

    April 18, 2013 at 12:12 pm

    • really, have to try it, i hate beets maybe this would be good … the old lady next door said to me well you never tried my beets and she gave me one, and i had to eat it … omg lol, i lied i said oh that’s sooo good. i am sure it was if you like beets lol

      April 18, 2013 at 12:20 pm

      • Lie is an sin 😀 …LOL

        April 18, 2013 at 12:23 pm

      • lol, well i couldn’t very well spit out her beets and break her heart, is was a lie to save her feelings … she was so proud of her canned beets 🙂

        April 18, 2013 at 12:26 pm

  6. FOR SUGAR or EXTRA SWEET , I will wait till next year when my STEVIA PLANTS ( 300% sweeter than sugar ), will mature and cook theirs leaves with beetroot or rhubarb …Yummmmmm

    April 18, 2013 at 12:19 pm

    • i have to see if that will grow here, sounds like great idea 🙂

      April 18, 2013 at 12:21 pm

      • Watched a youtube video on STEVIA from CALIFORNIA, ( Your zone ), and it thrives there.

        April 18, 2013 at 12:25 pm
