A good friend here gave me this recipe to try. She was going to bring me a taste, but her husband performed one of his magic tricks, and it all disappeared! I think it sounds good. Maybe you would like to try it. Rhubarb has such a beautiful sweet tart taste when cooked. I have a patch of Strawberry Rhubarb, and may have enough to pull this week. Hopefully! If you have to buy rhubarb, choose the narrow red ones. Usually found at a Farmers Market. I think you will like it better than the thicker green stalks. Warning! do not use or cook the leaves they are toxic!!! Nancy 6/1/13
