The rhubarb has broken through to herald one of the first gardening signs of spring. The forsythias are in full bloom as well as the daffs. Even the yellow dots of dandelions are springing up. Did you ever notice all these yellow plants appear, in Michigan anyway, about the same time? I wonder if that is a coincidence that the bright yellow flowers warm our hearts at the same time the bright yellow sun warms our earth.

My husband cherishes his rhubarb...even raw! But it is better stewed....I cut it up into one inch pieces and place it in a pot and cook it. It will cook down without adding water. Then I stir in the sugar once it is stewed. What recipes do you have for using rhubarb?
