I Tasted Rhubarb

…and it was bitter.  Well sour, like a lemon.  And a little tart.  And all around not too pleasant.  I guess since it’s paired with things like strawberries and baked into pies, I always thought the raw stuff would be a little bit sweet.  Or at least mild like celery…

But then, inspired by my sister and the stalks of rhubarb at the farmer’s market, I just put a big crumb rhubarb coffee cake into the oven.

I’ll let you know what it looks and tastes like when I know!  Hopefully all of that sourness and bitterness will be baked away.
