Icelandic Rhubarb "Raisins"

I was slacking on my photo-taking. By the time I looked back at the dish, only five small raisins were left. I'll definitely be making this again! For our Sankt Hans Aften picnic celebration, I found a recipe for Icelandic rhubarb raisins. Though I am not a huge raisin fan, the rhubarb part of the recipe intrigued me. And, given how quickly these were devoured, they were a hit!

The recipe I found said to do this in the sun, covered with a thin cloth to keep the dust and bugs away. I used my oven! No bugs there...


  • rhubarb
  • organic granulated sugar

Slice your rhubarb into 1/2" to 1" pieces and place them in a small mixing bowl. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and preheat the oven to the lowest setting yours has. Mine was 170 degrees. F.

Add enough granulated sugar to the bowl to coat the rhubarb pieces completely. Place them on the prepared baking sheet and stick them in the oven.

Bake them until they are dried and shriveled. I think I left mine in the oven for about 4 hours. You can pack them in sugar or eat them right away. Use them anywhere you would use raisins!
