May – mid-June
Trim tough ends of rhubarb before using. Rhubarb may be eaten raw, though it is milder if cooked. Try making a sauce or adding to hot cereals or mixing with strawberries.
STORAGE AND HANDLING:
Rhubarb keeps best in the crisper bin of the fridge. A plastic bag around it helps it retain its moisture.
Rhubarb is very high in potassium, calcium and vitamin A and surprisingly enough contains some sodium.
