Strawberry-Rhubarb Crisp? So good! Rhubarb is a vegetable that pairs with both sweet and savory dishes, yet has a propensity for hooking up with berries in desserts to bring out its best. Raw Rhubarb stalks are crisp like red-skinned Celery and have a bold, bitter flavor that mellows with cooking and is accentuated by sugar. Use Rhubarb in pies, cobblers, crisps, chutneys, sauces, drink and lemonade recipes and more. I found some awesome rhubarb recipes here.
