(Pronounced ROO-bahrb)

Rhubarb, also known as pieplant, resembles a cherry-colored celery stalk with shaded leaves so enormous they look like deep-green elephant ears. For prepping, remove and discard leaves; trim off the bottom end of the stalk, wash in cold water and if stringy, peel. Only eat the stalks; the leaves contain oxalic acid and are poisonous.

Rhubarb is revered for the sour perkiness it adds to sweet and savory dishes. Complimentary flavors include citrus, berries, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and vanilla.

Rhubarb has a tart, tangy flavor that makes for beautiful desserts, such as crumbles, tarts and pies.

Choose stalks that are firm and crisp with glossy skin that is free of blemishes. Wrap, unwashed, in plastic and refrigerate three to seven days. Or wash and chop, place in freezer containers, and freeze up to three months.
