Our CSA is starting next week and I’m so excited. I feel like a got a head start last week though, picking up produce from Mosby Farm who donates ingredients for the Healthy Cooking on a Tight Budget Program. I LOVE Mosby and totally need to make a video about them sometime. Not only do they donate all the produce ingredients I need for each class, they also donate large quantities of the produce they have an abundance of to raffle off to class participants. Last week, we got lots of rhubarb to send participants home with, and Facebook was filled with their excited updates about making this lovely rhubarb crisp recipe over the weekend.Rhubarb is a plant with a long history. The earliest records of rhubarb use date all the way back to ancient China when it was used for medicinal purposes. One of the most unique qualities of rhubarb is that it is a vegetable that is used like a fruit, typically in pies and other rhubarb dessert recipes.
This rhubarb sauce recipe is simple to make in 20 minutes, with just 3 ingredients. It’s technically a rhubarb compote, meaning a chunky fruit sauce, but whatever you choose to call it, we know you’ll want to eat lots and lots of it. Pour over ice cream, stir it into yogurt, blend it into smoothies & more!
