    That's what I grew up eating, and yes, they're incredible and addictive.

    You forgot the pinch of ground ginger to mix in with the Rhubarb!!!

    A common mistake made when trying to come up with a totally foolproof design is to completely underestimate the innate ingenuity of fools.

    I never have eaten rhubarb. It looks suspiciously like celery and I can't picture a celery pie being all that good. Then again, I recently tasted a jalapeno/cucumber margarita and it was good. I'm not sure that I could find rhubarb down here unless I go to a high-end market.

    Does it taste like chicken?

    You guys don't know what you're missing. Rhubarb has a taste all of its own. It is sharp but palatable. Some mix it with strawberries to tone the sharpness down.

    Yes, the stalks kind of look like celery but that is where the similarity ends. Whatever you do, don't eat the leaves. They are poisonous. The stalks are the edible part.

    Damn, now my mouth is watering.

    The leaves are very high in oxalic acid.Be Careful When Eating Rhubarb - The Leaves Contain Oxalic Acid Which Can Be Toxic - Associated Content - associatedcontent.com

    I am a purist when it comes to rhubarb. Nothing else goes into my rhubarb pies.

    We have made rhubarb chutney... yummm (we do use apples in our chutneys because of the pectin to help thicken)

    I wasn't aware rhubarb is such a regional thing. Guess you learn something new every day!
