I used to have several rhubarb plants in my garden so I would make these yummy muffins to serve at my coffeehouse. They were a springtime favorite of my patrons. Now that we live in Florida, I find I really miss my garden and all that lovely fresh rhubarb. Now I have to buy store bought or frozen. These muffins still taste fabulous though!!
