Default Rhubarb canning

Should be picking in a week or two. Plan on canning w/sugar (water bath 15 min, or pressure 8 min 5 psi).

Anybody add any spices to the mixture? I'm thinking maybe some cinnamon allspice or clove.

Any favorites of yours?

I cut my rhubarb into small 2" pieces and freeze them individually (IQF) then put them in bags or jars according to the recipe size I need. Sorry I can not help you on canning.

Default Dehydrating Rhubarb

Anyone ever done this and what recipe or process did you use. I've tried it and love it but wasn't sure how they made is sweeter than just plain rhubarb.

I don't think we have ever dried rhubarb..one of the few crops that grow here with no effort. We freeze some and can it as sauces and such, usually with oranges or strawberries. Make a lot of wonderful pancake syrup, too, but unfortunately the wife is on a restricted diet, so we do without the regular pancakes.
