It’s rhubarb season! The edible stalks of the rhubarb plant grow in abundance in spring to early summer. It also grows in the autumn. If you can get your hands on some — through the farmers market, a friend’s backfield patch or in your own garden — there’s so much you can do with it.

And rhubarb is ever so delightful in them.
