Don’t know much about rhubarb? Get the lowdown on this puckery tart vegetable with this Rhubarb 101!
Growing up with rhubarb, and a mom who especially adored this plant on the farm, I thought that everyone knew about it. What it looked like and how it tasted. And I just presumed that every recipe box in the country included at least a few well used recipe cards that glorified this humble plant, most likely in their grandmother’s handwriting.
But ever since I shared the first rhubarb recipe on the blog (my mother-in-law’s rhubarb nut coffee cake), just a few weeks after a farmgirl’s dabbles was born in 2010, I realized how wrong I was. So I’m here to talk about all things rhubarb with this Rhubarb 101!
I created this Rhubarb 101 for The Pioneer Woman’s website, where I am a regular contributor to Ree’s Food & Friends section. Click here to read the full post on The Pioneer Woman’s site, and to grab my mom’s recipe for her super simple rhubarb sauce. It’s one of my dad’s favorite springtime dessert toppers!
