More About Rhubarb
Rhubarb by scientific definition is determined to be a vegetable. However, it is commonly thought of as more of a fruit. That is because it is most often found in sweet dishes such as Strawberry Rhubarb Pie or even Rhubarb Sauce. As a food source, Rhubarb is well known to be a source of Vitamin A, C, and Potassium. Consequently, you should find more ways to include it in the meals you prepare for you and your family.
A springtime vegetable that continues to grow free in your garden year after year. Every yard should have a batch of Rhubarb, especially in this day of increasing Food Insecurity Issues.
Rhubarb although not originally native to Canada, was first imported here by our European ancestors. It surprisingly rooted well and showed itself to be able to withstand the shortened growing season and the harsh winters.
So make sure to include some Rhubarb Cinnamon Crisp Pudding in your meals this week and reflect on our Pioneer ancestors as we enter Canada’s 150th upcoming Birthday.
