You know it must be spring when the blogs begin offering up recipes featuring — and often starring — rhubarb. My grandmother made the most delicious rhubarb pie, but I must admit: The recipe for Doughnut Tea Cakes with Rhubarb Orange Compote posted on Lara Ferroni’s blog look utterly delectable. While I haven’t tested it out yet, the blend of orange and rhubarb in the compote sounds refreshing.

Rhubarb Sorbet
This recipe from All Day I Dream About Food is both low-carb and gluten-free. That practically makes it good for you.

Mulberry and Rhubarb Crumb Cake
Wow. The pictures accompanying the recipe on Cannelle et Vanille prove this crumb cake would be perfect served to guests at brunch or even as a sweet, light snack.

Gingered Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp
With great textures this recipe from Cook with Sara is perfect paired with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Rhubarb Blueberry Turnovers
Nicole from Pinch My Salt’s first run at using rhubarb in a recipe as well as tackling homemade pastries is definitely a success. She includes photos for each step alongside her recipe.

Blueberry Rhubarb Jam
Like the combo of blueberries and rhubarb, but turnovers aren’t your style? This jam recipe from Anecdotes and Apple Cores works wonderfully with drop biscuits, muffins and the like.

Rhubarb Walnut Bread
This recipe from So Good and Tasty isn’t super sweet. It has just enough sweetness to counter the tart rhubarb, plus a bit of crunch compliments of walnuts.
