I am a city girl and have never grown anything in my life.
Six years ago, my husband and I moved to Utah and in the backyard of the house that we bought,
there was this….”plant”.
It didn’t really look like a shrub normally used in landscaping
and I was fairly certain that it wasn’t a weed,
so I had hubby come take a look at it before I yanked it out.
Growing up in Oregon, he knew exactly what it was. He promptly broke off a stalk and
he started to…I couldn’t believe it….EAT IT!
That was my first exposure to rhubarb and now I LOVE my rhubarb plant and anxiously await harvest time.
Now that I knew what my “plant” is, I needed some rhubarb recipes. I must admit that the word “dump” doesn’t always conjure up a wonderful mental image, but when I found this pin for Rhubarb Dump Cake I knew that I wanted to try it because it looked so easy! And let me tell you, it didn’t disappoint. So let’s get cooking with rhubarb!
