A member of our Magnolia family has a hankering for some rhubarb. Many people do not know that rhubarb is a strictly northern fruit. Not sure it qualifies as a fruit but at any rate it does not grow in the south. Cindy Peterson is a former resident of Iowa and now lives in south Texas year around. She would very much appreciate it if someone could bring her some rhubarb so she could make a rhubarb cobbler. Maybe if you bring her enough she will make enough to share with you. Any questions about this request you can call Cindy at 515-571-2189
Rhubarb is a vegetable, but it is often cooked, sweetened and combined with other fruits as a dessert. Rhubarb is an ancient plant traced back to China in 2700 BC. It was used for medical purposes as a laxative, to reduce fever and cleanse the body. Rhubarb is a perennial plant that has stalks similar to celery.
