I like saying the word "rhubarb." It's fun and rolls off the tongue amusingly like "kumquat." In fact, I would name a pet rhubarb, maybe a cat or a bird.
Rhubarb looks like celery's bigger, pinker, party-friendly sibling. I'd much rather invite rhubarb to my neighborhood fundraising for the Fireman's calendar potluck. Although, celery does go much better dipping in blue cheese dressing for chicken wings.
I saw these beautiful stalks of organic rhubarb at Whole Foods with some strawberries and immediately hungered for some pie. I found some wonderful food bloggers who have recipe for pie. Enjoy!
