I am so wanting to buy rhubarb at the farmers market...planning on going next weekend. I only had rhubarb once in my life...a few years ago, a friend made rhubarb pie. I very much enjoyed it and am looking forward to baking with it for the very first time. Any helpful tips?

I LOVE rhubarb! My mother has always been an excellent cook, and her strawberry-rhubarb pies are the best!
How does one plant rhubarb? is it a seed, or do you plant something else??

@ Bonnie-- baking with rhubarb is so easy and delish! you'll love it. just wash it really well and cut off a couple inches on both ends, then chop it according to your recipe. a lot of recipes will call for 1/2 inch pieces.

i just tried a new rhubarb coffee cake this weekend and it's my new favorite!! you can find it here:

@ Lydia Joy-- i don't know if i'll be too much help here.. but we planted our rhubarb from little 'seedlings' from our grandma's full-grown rhubarb plant. i'm not sure if it works well from seed or not.
