Yay! The rhubarb is coming up!!! Time to get out my rhubarb recipes including this recreated version of my graduation punch – Strawberry Rhubarb Slush.rhubarb slush

Spring is my favorite season. I love the fresh, new growth of everything coming to life after the cold, dark winter. Ruby red spikes poking through the soil with emerald green leaves unfurling is a beautiful sight! Not only are the red stalks of rhubarb pretty, they can be made into tasty treats that are healthy for you. I was surprised to learn of the high calcium content in rhubarb as well as many vitamins and minerals that provide a host of health benefits for your body. Check out the “Dig Into This” column in the Rhubarb section of our book, Eating Pure in a Processed Foods World®, to learn more about the great nutritional properties of rhubarb.
