Rhubarb Leaf

Rhubarb

Although recipes treat rhubarb as a fruit, it is really a vegetable. It tart taste is excellent in a number of dessert dishes and combines well with other berries. The best season for rhubarb is late spring and early summer months. Rhubarb is a perennial that requires a cold dormant winter season.

The thick red and green stalks are the only edible part of the plant.

Don't eat the leaves or roots as they are toxic due to excessive oxalic acid.

Because rhubarb has a tart flavor, it is best served cooked and sweetened.

Selection

Choose rhubarb that has a vivid bright colored stalks that feel firm, crisp, and dry.

Avoid all stalks that may appear wilted, limp or have browned.

Storage

Rhubarb is best when prepared as soon as it is cut or purchased. It does not store well, so be warned. Use one of those new "green" storage bags to keep it as fresh as possible till cooked... about one week.

Wash rhubarb well before using in a recipe.

Preparation

Store bought rhubarb usually has the leaves and roots trimmed. But if you have it growing in garden, remove any leaves and root ends when harvesting.

Typically rhubarb is chopped or sliced for recipes.

Avoid cooking rhubarb in aluminum pots as it will produce an uneatable dish because of the chemical reaction of the rhubarb with the aluminum.

When cooked rhubarb contains: calcium, fiber, and Vitamins C and K.

1 pound of rhubarb stalks raw yields: 4 cups

1 pound of cooked rhubarb yields: 2 cups

The Tart

Spray the tart pas with a non-stick oil spray.

Press the prepared pie crusts into the tart pans and place the tarts atop an insulated cookie sheet. This will prevent hot spots or burning to occur during the baking process. It will also make removing the tarts from the oven easier.
