Rhubarb: A Sign of Spring


You know it's spring when you start to see rhubarb popping up in the supermarket. That's about the time we begin making endless rhubarb crumbles and crisps, and folding it into every cake and muffin batter we can think of!

Rhubarb Custard Tart - Step 1-020

Rhubarb is technically a vegetable, but it responds best when treated as a fruit – adding a little sugar results in a taste as sweet as any summer berry! While it’s often paired with strawberries, rhubarb is also lovely on its own.

Slightly tart, rhubarb perfectly complements buttery desserts, and our Rhubarb Crusted Tart is a prime example. Topped with a crisp, golden crumble, this tart makes it clear why rhubarb is so popular this time of year.

The best part? Pre-made pie crust makes it so simple to make. Add this dish to your “to do list” this week, and treat yourself and family or friends to a seasonal sensation. Just don’t forget to pick up some vanilla ice cream while you’re at it – a finishing dollop brings it to a whole other level. Yum!
