Rhubarb & Menus

I have never been a rhubarb eater.  And to be honest, I don't know why!  I like it, I like the taste, I LOVE strawberry rhubarb pie.  So I'm not sure why I turn away from it so often.  I was buying strawberries at the farmers market last week and I looked over and saw this huge pile of rhubard.  I thought to myself, "why not", grabbed a bunch and headed home.  Now.....what the heck do I make with these!  I wanted to try something different then the typical rhubarb strawberry pie, crumble, or jelly.  So, I went to one of my all time favorite food blogs, 101 Cookbooks and found this......Rhubarb & Rosewater Syrup!  I can't even wait to try this out this week.  I will most definitely be taking pictures and blogging about my experience making this!  Stay tuned!

We are entering the season of amazingly fresh food everywhere!  I am in love!
