Rhubarb can be found in Idaho at most farmers markets or maybe in your backyard from late May through August. Known for its tart flavor, rhubarb can be used in a variety of sweet dishes from pies, cakes, and desserts to savory dishes such as sauces, conserves, and pickles. When selecting rhubarb look for firm stalks that can range from green to dark red. While the stalks are ideal for cooking the leaves are poisonous so make sure to discard them properly.
