Rhubarb is a vegtable

It is Friday and Fridays are for fun . . . and no I am not aking this up. Rhubarb is a vegetable. It is also a good source of calcium, Potassium and vitamin C. I grow Rhubarb and have put it in pies, jam, jelly, rhubarb cake, rhubarb sauce and rhubarb crisp. Each of those recipes need a lot of sugar.

Rhubarb can also be used to make salsa. I have found a few recipes. It makes sense because if you add enough pepper it probably tastes like pepper. I might also try roasted rhubarb and rhubarb butter which isn’t butter at all but is made with rhubarb, honey and orange juice and can be used as a sauce for pork or chicken. I may try it as a barbecue sauce or marinate or glaze the next time I grill chicken.

The best way to find new, exciting, nutritious or tasty recipes that include rhubarb is by asking Google.

Eventually I will have to make rhubarb pie or cake because I can.

Growing rhubarb is easy and it is fun and can be one of the many joys of homeownership. Even on my inner city postage stamp sized lot I am able to grow a nice rhubarb crop.
