Fresh Rhubarb Recipes

Rhubarb's naturally tart flavor makes it a perfect ingredient for sweet treats. Rhubarb hits its peak season from April to June, which is when we love to use it in our favorite rhubarb pie, rhubarb cake, and strawberry-rhubarb dessert recipes. But don't limit fresh rhubarb to dessert -- it makes a fantastic accompaniment to pork, breads, and even chicken salad.
