Rhubarb Facts: Throughout history, Rhubarb has been used for both culinary and medicinal purposes. Although you can eat rhubarb raw, you probably won’t enjoy it. It has a sour, brutally bitter taste, so most people prefer to cook it with sugar. At the Market, our Rhubarb comes in 1lb bundles of fresh stalks.
Rhubarb is a great substitute for almost anything that calls for cranberry--we especially like its sour punch in sweet Lemon Rhubarb Scones. Just use your favourite scone recipe, adding Lemon zest and chopped Rhubarb! They're best served warm with Strawberry Jam!
