Rhubarb– is a vegetable that resembles celery in that it grows as stalks. It has leafy green that are not consumed, but the red stalks are prepared in jams, compotes and pies. An addition of sugar is necessary due to its distinctly tart taste.
Northern growers will harvest in early Spring, whereas Southern growers will harvest in early- late fall making Rhubarb available for us here in the USA basically all year round.
I typically buy Rhubarb when I first see it hit the market and I cut it into 1″ pieces and freeze it for later use in pies and jams.
1 Cup Chopped Rhubarb = 118g (4ounces)
