23 Mar What’s in Season – Rhubarb
I apologize for my absence the last few weeks but there hasn’t been any change in what is in season.
But I’m so excited for spring and the constant change of new fruits and vegetables coming into season. So without further ado, lets talk about the new fruit added to the list this week…..
Rhubarb is a great source of fiber and a good source of Vitamin C and Calcium. When buying rhubarb you want to look for crisp, firm stalks with good color. Store it in the fridge (fresh rhubarb will stay in decent condition for 1-2 weeks).
When preparing rhubarb wash and trim both ends of the stalks, discard the leaves as they are poisonous. Rhubarb has a very tart flavor to it and requires some sweetening, which is why so many people like Strawberry Rhubarb pie. Please share any fabulous rhubarb recipes you have either in the comments of this blog!!!
