Rhubarb

Rhubarb is yummy, but it seems like I get deluged with it once a year.  We froze most of our crop, but got more from our crop share.  So I thought I’d share with you two great, simple recipes.  The photo above is from a recipe from Martha Stewart that you can find here.  It’s very simple to make and quick!  It has a great flavor.

Another great rhubarb recipe is for these healthy muffins which disappeared so quickly I wasn’t able to take a photo.  (I got this recipe from a friend, and I don’t know the original source.  No copyright infringement intended.)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Combine:
1 1/2 cup AP flour (all-purpose)
