My mother-in-law gave me this recipe and i just love it. It's about all i do with my rhubarb. I usually make a double batch because my husband could eat it all. I usually just measure the 4 cups as opposed to measuring out 2 pounds. i also just pour the sugar and sprinkle the water over the top. I don't stir it.
these are delicious. i do not use the walnuts as we are allergic to them, but i do dust them with confectioners sugar as it makes them look prettier. i have had this recipe for over 20 years so i do not remember where i got it. prep time includes 1 hour chill time.
I found this recipe in a magazine a couple of years ago. I am the only one who likes this in my family (they won't try it because it has poppy seeds in it) but i make it anyway. I love it that much. I do share with my mom.
