What is Rhubarb?

Rhubarb is a plant that grows like celery and is actually a tart vegetable, even though we treat it like a fruit and it is often prepared as a dessert.

And rhubarb is often considered one of the first harbingers of spring, which is one of the many reasons we look forward to rhubarb season!

It is very tart, and while technically you. could eat it raw, it is usually cooked and paired with sugar so that it is still tangy but balanced out a bit

Growing up my Great-Grandfather grew tons of rhubarb and gave it all to my mother who turned it into the most amazing Strawberry Rhubarb Pie, Rhubarb Coffee Cake, Strawberry Rhubarb Crumble, Strawberry Rhubarb Muffins, and this Strawberry Rhubarb Sauce among other yummy treats.
