Rhubarb, oh rhubarb! by L

Rhubarb… love the name, the color and the tang. Therefore, on a recent visit to my local farmers market, I couldn’t resist  bringing home some stalks. However, I’m not an expert with this vegetable, (sometimes called a fruit too,) so I was a bit unsure about how they would end up on our plates.

Thank goodness for the Internet! One thing I did have in mind was to use this herbaceous perennial in a dessert to celebrate my husband’s birthday. But, have you ever heard of a rhubarb birthday cake? Yep, me neither.

However, a strawberry rhubarb tiramisu for a summer birthday was a fine runner-up. I found this delicious recipe from  http://www.chatelaine.com/recipe/stovetop-cooking-method/strawberry-rhubarb-tiramisu/  The only substitute  I made was to use a cup of orange juice instead of 3/4 cup of orange juice and 1/4 of Grand Marnier. It had to be a toddler friendly dessert.

All that’s left to say is that this tasted absolutely divine. Now go and find some rhubarb before the season is over!
