Pinkish-red and celery like, rhubarb is actually a member of the fruit family. Available locally from mid-April through early summer, rhubarb can be incorporated into your diet in many unique ways. A rich source of phytochemicals, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals, this elusive plant is quite easy to cook with. Rhubarb is a bit bitter in flavor on it’s own so it’s often paired with spring berries to balance the flavor and add some sweetness. You can easily create a berry and rhubarb compote that can be served with your favorite warm breakfast cereal, yogurt, or alone as a mildly sweet treat. Here are five healthy recipes to get you excited about cooking with rhubarb!
