    Has anyone found anywhere selling frozen rhubarb? I'm loving my rhubarb, but Asda, is the only place I've found it so far, fresh. I have frozen rhubarb I have stewed myself, but I'd like to find an easy stock.

    Thanks in anticipation.

    Anyone?

    I've bought it from tesco and Iceland in the past, I have to agree with you it has seemed particularly difficult to buy fresh this year, I have a local green grocer that sells it but don't manage to get there often

    I grow my own but it didn't seem to want to grow this year. I don't know what the cause of that was. I had to apply CPR and put it in a large container of compost and it is making a recovery. Maybe it's just a bad year for rhubarb.

    Co-op seems to do a good range of frozen fruit.

    I'll have a look next time I pass, although even in the main town, it's not a large store by any means. If they do a decent range, there may be other gems I'm missing. Thanks.

    Thanks everyone.

    My nearest town is a no horse town, so I'll have to go further afield. However, I had a bit of a result this afternoon, when my local greengrocer had some in stock. Naturally, I made an investment, and I will be freezing it for myself.
