When I think about spring in New England, the first thing that comes to mind is rhubarb. I patiently wait for the farms to put up their signs saying that it's available, then I go "stalk" up.  Some gets used right away, but I freeze some for use throughout the year.  The best way to do that is to chop it in 1/2" pieces and freeze them on a single layer on a rimmed cookie sheet.
