Ah, rhubarb. It's so wonderfully weird.
With its ruby red and green stalks, rhubarb is one of the earliest fruits in season - sprouting up as early as mid-May. And if you have space in your backyard, it's also one of the easiest plants to grow (and thankfully one of the hardest ones to kill ... despite a lot of neglect in my own backyard).
Now ... what to do with this tart temptation? Well, rhubarb and strawberries always go together perfectly. Thank of them like the cast of a romantic comedy. One is the leading lady - sweet, gorgeous, adored by virtually everybody. The other is the sassy, down-to-earth best friend, who makes everything a lot more interesting.
