In northern climates, rhubarb is one of the first plants to emerge from the ground after the winter. As such, it is much heralded as the first “fresh” produce of the Spring.

While rhubarb leaves are beautiful, it’s important to note that rhubarb leaves are poisonous. That’s why you will often see rhubarb in stores and markets with the leaves removed already. You only want to use/eat the stalks of the rhubarb.

Look for stalks that are firm and have a least a little red or pink colour to them (all green ones are quite tart). Stalks should not be limp. That is a sign of old rhubarb.

How to store rhubarb:

If you have fresh-from-the-garden rhubarb, remove and discard the leaves. Don’t wash. Simply wrap or place in plastic and store in the fridge for up to 1 week. Wash just before using.

Freezing rhubarb:

Rhubarb freezes beautifully and needs no special preparation before freezing. Simply freeze the stalks or cut in to smaller pieces, place in a freezer bag and freeze up to one year.
