Rhubarb, often mistaken for a fruit, is a unique and tart vegetable celebrated for its distinctive taste and vibrant red or green stalks. With a robust, tangy flavor, rhubarb is typically sweetened when used in culinary applications. It is a key ingredient in pies, crisps, and jams, where its tartness is beautifully balanced with sugar. Rhubarb is a source of vitamins, particularly vitamin K, and dietary fiber. Its adaptability in sweet desserts and its ability to provide a bold contrast to other flavors make rhubarb an intriguing and beloved addition to many springtime dishes and treats.
