All About Rhubarb

Rhubarb is one of our favorite spring ingredients - we love to bake with it, preserve it and even make quick breads with it! Learn some rhubarb facts and try some of these delicious rockin' rhubarb recipes today!

One of the first signs of spring is the appearance of rhubarb in grocery stores and Farmers Markets. The stalks have a tart flavor and are used alone or combined with fruit to create, pies, cookies, cakes and jams. And although the stalks are 100% edible, the leaves are actually toxic in large amounts. So if you grow your own remember only to use the stalks.

Rhubarb Varieties

Rhubarb comes in two varieties: "hothouse or forced," and "cultivated." Hothouse rhubarb is usually available in late February to early March, but the cultivated kind starts showing up in late April to early May. You can tell the difference between the two as the hothouse variety has a darker red color than the cultivated kind. Both taste great in recipes but are much too tart to eat raw or alone. With that in mind, Recipe4Living has
put together fabulous rhubarb recipes from jams to pies.
