Forcing Rhubarb

2 February 2009

Rhubarb is a very easy plant to grow and makes a very refreshing dessert. This video shows you a very simple and easy way to force rhubarb. This means getting the plant to grow faster than it would normally by “tricking” it into thinking that it has not reached the surface of the soil. Trevor does this using a special forcing jar, but as you will see in the video, a bucket will do just as well.

For an interesting article on rhubarb, including some recipes check this article in The Post.ie.
