Whole Wheat Rhubarb Scones

rhubarb sconesRhubrab grows all over around here and is pretty much free for the taking if you are brave enough to knock on doors and ask! Rhubarb is one of the first crops of the spring and is the earliest crop that resembles fruit. It seems like a lot of people don’t like rhubarb, but I think it’s delicious. I read with interest about Barbara Kingsolver’s experience with rhubarb as she ate only local food for a year in her book¬†Animal, Vegetable, Miracle: A Year of Food Life¬†– one of my all time favorite books.

My own rhubarb is not doing well the year {location is too shady, I think}, but that has not stopped me from finding free rhubarb! One of my favorite recipes to make with rhubarb are these scones! I’m kind of weird and love a crunchy scone and this is a recipe I have made over and over again.

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour {I use freshly ground hard white wheat}
  • 1/2 cup sugar {I use coarse raw sugar}
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup cold butter
  • 1 cup rhubarb, finely chopped
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • extra sugar for dusting

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Stir together all dry ingredients: flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  3. Cut in cold butter until the mix resembles peas.
  4. Add rhubarb and milk and stir gently until combined. Mixture will be dry.
  5. Turn mix out on a baking stone and form into a 9" circle. Sprinkle extra sugar over the circle, if desired. {It's really good with the extra sugar - adds a nice crunch!} Cut the circle into 8 pie shaped wedges and gently move them apart so they are not touching each other.
  6. Bake for 22-25 minutes, or until lightly browned.
  7. Enjoy!
