Rhubarb-ilicious

It’s decided.

I am having an intense love affair with rhubarb.

Or maybe it’s more like we are BFFs.

Or is it that I have a crush on rhubarb?

Can one have a food crush?

I want Tom Robbins to write a story featuring rhubarb the way he did for beets.

Let me explain. Rhubarb has got style with it’s bright pink slender stalks. It’s full of sass and take-that attitude. It’s a vegetable posing as a fruit (unlike the tomato who is fruit posing as a vegetable). Don’t think that it is just red celery – because it’s not. It can be savory or it can be sweet and there is no hiding its unique flavor. Rhubarb is one-of-a-kind and utterly delectable.

How can you not fall in love with it?

Be prepared for an onslaught of rhubarb recipes.
