This Is The Love Affair You Need To Have This Spring.
Springtime ushers in delightful moments. Flowers bloom, the sun peeks out from the spectrum of winter grays and lovers fall in love. It's a great time to have an affair.
With rhubarb that is.
Yes, it gets a bad name with its poisonous leafy greens. However, with the bad always comes the good. It's the Ying and Yang of life. Chop off the dangerous green parts and then prepare the lovely red stems. Make a delightful, saccharine, tart, relish that will make anyone swoon their way into spring.
Roasted Rhubarb Relish
- 6 1/2 cups fresh cut red rhubarb scrubbed and thinly chopped (remove and discard all the green leaves)
- 1 1/2 cups turbinado sugar
Step 1: Preheat an oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. In a large bowl, combine the rhubarb and the sugar.
Step 2: Place the rhubarb/sugar mixture on the baking sheet and cover with aluminum foil. Bake for 15 minutes or until the sugar dissolves. Remove the top layer of aluminum foil and bake for an additional 7-10 minutes or until the rhubarb is soft.
Use the relish on yogurt, ice cream, in muffins or eat by the spoonful and enjoy!
Until soon lovers and friends.
