Yum, maybe I'll make this on Sunday. If I wanted to do 1/2 strawberries & 1/2 rhubarb, how much sugar do you think I should cut back on? I do like things more on the tart side.

I heard that rhubarb was poisonous if you don't cook it before you eat it. Does anyone know if that is true?

I don't think so or I would be dead or diseased by now . Growing up we would eat it like sticks of celery with a bit of salt.

Only the leaves on the rhubarb are poisonous, cooked or not. Be sure to get rid of those!!! Generally, grocery stores don't sell rhubarb stalks with the leaves still on.

Thanks for letting everyone for responding. This may sound silly but I always get scared eating rhubarb because I would wonder if all of the posion was cooked out of them. I won't worry so much anymore.

I love raw rhubarb, with a bit of salt. Again, the stalks are perfectly good to eat. I didn't know the leaves were poisonous,. so I did a bit of research and found this site - http://www.rhubarbinfo.com/rhubarb-background.html#TOC2. It tells teh botanical nature of rhubarb, its history, its differing varieties, and its cousins and look-alikes. It also confirms that the leaves are indeed poisonous, and what susbtance in the leaf is the culprit, and how it affects you if you eat it.

That being said, the edible stalk, and roots, have medicinal value. They are also a vegetable, but work very well in jams, jellies, and pies. Their flavor naturally compliments strawberries and vice-versa. Rhubarb-straberry pie was a favorite of my mother, and is enjoyed by my family as well. Rhubarb can also be made into a sweet and sour sauce to be used with white meats, and pork, and with tempura-coated foods.

It's a hardy, easy to grow veggie that needs only water, and a place with rich soil. It needs little care and spreads profusely.

Hope this helps.

My grandma used to grow a little rhubarb in her flower bed. She really loved it.
I like rhubard pie with vanilla ice cream on it. I'll bet your crunch is really good, Raine.
