Mmmmm. I love rhubarb.
In my amazing bag '0 veggies, I found rhubarb this week. I really like rhubarb. I love the tart taste. I love the slightly stringy texture. I especially love it with strawberries. We are heading over to a friend's house for dinner tonight. I took my ruby stalks and sliced them into bite sized pieces. I put them in a pot and added some sugar, vanilla, and a tiny bit of water. I let it cook until the rhubarb wasn't so firm. Then I added some sliced strawberries. I let it simmer for about 15 more minutes until it was a ruby red, juicy slush. I plan on bringing it tonight with a quart of vanilla ice cream. Or, I may just sit over the pan with a spoon and eat the entire batch. It could go either way.
