Top 10 Rhubarb Recipes For Your Coffee Table

Rhubarb has a unique sweet, tart flavor that perfectly complements many other sweet fruits for pies and juices. Perhaps that’s why it is most often thought of as a fruit. But did you know that rhubarb is actually a vegetable?

It is a perennial growing from short, thick rhizomes and the stem-like part is what we use. Rhubarb leaves contain a poison, called oxalic acid, so should never be eaten. Usually rhubarb is sold without the leaves but in case they are not, just cut them off and discard.

Rhubarb is an amazingly healthy plant packed with vitamins and minerals and has various benefits for the human body. Rhubarb aids weight loss, promotes a normal digestion process, prevents cancer, stimulates bone growth and protects against osteoporosis and help promote healthy skin.

The good news is that they are widely available in almost any season. If you don’t know how to use rhubarb, here is a list of ten rhubarb recipes for a start. They are all deliciously sweet, perfect for your coffee table!
