What can I do with my rhubarb?
Rhubarb has a bright color with stalks that are quite sour. When I was much younger, I would bring a small bowl of sugar out to the rhubarb patch, pick a stalk and dip the end into the sugar and take a bite. Along with sugar, you could also use honey, agave nectar, or maple syrup to help tame the tartness and add a bit of sweetness.
When cooked it can become a delicious sweet-tart. This vegetable is so versatile that you can add it to a variety of dishes to satisfy your cravings. Pro-Tip. Do not eat the leaves as they are poisonous.
