With its bright color and tart taste, rhubarb is great for making delicious pies!
While you may not want to munch on the raw stalks — they're fairly sour — rhubarb becomes sweeter when cooked. And because it's so versatile, you can incorporate it into a variety of dishes. Strawberry and rhubarb are a classic pairing — the sweet and sour flavors balance each other out in an unexpected way.
