Pull Your Rhubarb

Breaking news!

Your rhubarb plant will replenish the stalks it loses, throughout the summer, if they are properly “extracted”!

Fun!  I love the idea of experimenting with rhubarb desserts for 3 months, so I’m in…

Pretty simple way to ensure that this happens:  you’ve got to pull your rhubarb stalks straight out of the plant.

Don’t twist.  Don’t cut. Don’t break it off.

Pull.  Hard.  Use both hands and get a firm stance on the ground and yank that stalk!  You’ll know that you did it right when you see the papery “husks” at the bottom of the stalks.

And now you can reap the benefits of this delicious and tart treat for so much longer than you thought!
