What are your most delicious rhubarb uses/recipes?

So it's rhubarb season and I've finally managed to buy a big batch, yay! I love the stuff and have been waiting for this all year. I usually make crumbles/stews, but am looking to push the boat out a little more this time to get the most out of it, finding new recipes and also ways to preserve for when it's no longer around (jams, in alcohol, freezing?). What are your favourite recipes and what other things have you found pair well with it? Have you ever made booze with rhubarb? I'd be grateful for any tips, and thank you in advance!

Cooking With Mulberries?

It's Berry Season! On my kitchen ledge I have a enormous punnet of fresh mulberries - more than we can possibly eat fresh. I need to use them up before they spoil, but it's not a fruit I'm very familiar with. Please share your mulberry recipes! (Ones involving baking would be favorite!)

And A Partridge in a Pear TRee

I've been gifted a fruit basket. The problem is while there are lots of fruits I eat, I now find myself with a bunch of fat pears. Because I'm a picky eater, I don't like pears. However, since I'll be attending holiday parties, I figure there are probably some delicious pear recipes-cookies, desserts-that would allow me to share this gift with people who will actually enjoy them.

Emphatically *not* gluten free.

Vegetarian recipes filter: I have a box of "vital wheat gluten" sitting around my pantry. What can I do with it that is vegetarian (lacto-ovo; no other food restrictions) and tastes delicious? I am pretty decent at both cooking and baking, so complicated recipes are welcome alongside simpler ones.

Hey Reese's? You're not the only game in chocolate and peanut butter town.

Either I'm being paranoid or the stores I frequent have stopped stocking certain items beloved by me because they contain both chocolate and peanut butter. Paranoid or not, I can bake, and am therefore not at the mercy of the peanut butter and chocolate overlords. Which leads me to ask the question, what decadent peanut butter and chocolate recipes do you have to share?

Please help me not rue the day I planted rhubarb

Looking at my rhubarb patch, it seems I'm going to be eating a lot of rhubarb this summer. Though my mother always had some in our garden, I don't think I've ever eaten rhubarb in any form but in rhubarb pie or rhubarb crisp. What's your favourite rhubarb recipe?

What's a good picnic recipe using APPLES?

Today's theme ingredient is...APPLES! What apple-based dessert recipe would you recommend for a picnic? 1) I don't care much for the very tart varieties of apple (e.g., Granny Smith), so I prefer a recipe that uses, or at least works with, the less tart varieties. 2) There will be several hours between baking and serving, so it should be servable at room temperature. 3) I'm reasonably skilled in the kitchen; you need not shy away from more difficult recipes.
