Is rhubarb a fruit or a vegetable? A lot has been said about this particular ingredient, but only a few decades ago I found out that it's a fruit. This must be, in part, because of its tart taste, which makes it perfect in marmalades, compotes and pastries, mostly used in the United States and England.
The rhubarb season is short, which is why I recommend buying as much as you can when you see it available to freeze it and use it throughout the year. Before using, you have to peel it; and don't even think about using the leaves, because they're toxic!
Kids will be happy with these mini pies made in the form of a paleta. Whatever the occasion, they'll look great on the table and everyone will enjoy them. Buen provecho!
