Rhubarb is a vegetable that goes really well in desserts and salads. Its flavor is slightly sour, so it needs to be combined with sugar, resulting in an exceptional sweet-and-sour taste. Rhubarb comes in green and red varieties. Red rhubarb is ideal when you want to add some color to your dishes. Make sure to discard rhubarb leaves, as they are toxic. The stems, however, can be eaten safely. This rhubarb bread is sweet, sour, soft, and golden. It goes perfectly with a glass of milk or a cup of coffee. MORE + LESS -
