Contrary to popular belief, rhubarb doesn't need to buddy up with strawberries for it to shine in a vibrant fruit dessert. When you're buying rhubarb, look for thick, firm stalks with ruffled leaves (which you'll remove before cooking). To store it, wrap the bunch in a damp paper towel, transfer to a sealed plastic bag, and refrigerate for up to 5 days. But with this collection of delicious rhubarb desserts, we bet it won't last in your fridge for that long.

Rhubarb Galette

This simple rhubarb filling is spiked with fresh ginger, taking it from great to simply divine. The galette is delicious with a homemade pie crust, of course, but because the rhubarb is the star, a store-bought crust will do just fine.

This fuss-free dessert styles itself—no need for frosting. To serve, slice into squares and serve with vanilla ice cream. You may as well make copies of the recipe now, because everyone will be asking.

Raspberry-Rhubarb Tart

This super-simple sweet is yet another reason to love your cast-iron skillet. You'll lay in the crust, top with the rhubarb mixture, then fold the edge of the dough over the fruit to create pleats. Serve directly from the skillet with whipped cream. Yum!

Raspberry-Rhubarb Compote

Sure, we like this fresh fruit compote spooned over ice cream for a colorful new take on sundaes. But the versatile sauce can be made savory, too—try it on plain yogurt or oatmeal for breakfast.
