Spring was off to a good start then that long rainstorm sort of delayed things our gardens, but with all that moisture plants will be getting growing now that it’s warming up a bit.
Rhubarb is the first fruit ready in Edmonton usually, so here are some things to do with rhubarb.
How to pick it:
- Cut the stalk off with a knife close to the base. The larger stalks will be the toughest, so will need longer cooking and might not be as flavourful as medium to smaller stalks.
- Trim the leafs off, they are toxic to eat.
- Next, you can either peel the outer husk off or leave it.
- Cut into chunks for recipes and storing some away in the freezer for the cooler months of the year.
