Rhubarbâa wonderful welcoming sign that spring is indeed here. Youâve probably started seeing it in your supermarket, but for a real treat, check out your local farmersâ market for itâs ruby red stalks. While we often associate it with fruitâstrawberry rhubarb pies are a classic- rhubarb is actually classified as a vegetable.
Whatever category you put it in, Iâm crazy about it and you should be too. Since it appeared last week, Iâve been making muffins mostly. Now Iâm moving onto jam and decided to kick off the 2010 canning season. Tempted as I was to keep it simple and showcase this tart fruit on itâs own, I decided to add in some frozen wild blueberries left from last yearâs harvest. The result was a not-too-sweet jam perfect for toasted bread or warmed and spooned over Sunday brunch pancakes.
