I think rhubarb is an under-appreciated vegetable. It’s a vegetable. You knew that, right? Ya…me either for a long time. Here’s an easy way to get folks who don’t like vegetables (I can’t believe that’s even real.) to eat one. Disguise it as a treat. These Rhubarb Muffins are sweet and a nice change from the typical strawberry rhubarb pie or jam.
Chop the rhubarb into small pieces, no larger than 1/4″. Rhubarb is bitter. You can minimize the bitterness by making the bites small.
When you pick rhubarb you should pull the stalk from the ground. This stimulates hormones in the plant to replace the stalk.
