Rhubarb is a root vegetable that has toxic leaves. But the stalk of rhubarb is often used as a tart contrast to fruit in pies, crisps, and jams.

Rhubarb: Cook Once, Eat Twice

When rhubarb starts showing up around town (and, happily, in my garden), I know that the way we've been eating is about to change. Soon we'll have asparagus to roast, baby lettuces to enjoy, and, if we're really lucky, fresh peas to eat.
