Use Up Your Rhubarb!

rhubarb 330It's rhubarb season! Rhubarb is one of the first garden vegetables to be ready for consumption in early summer. There are many great ways to use up your rhubarb, and one of our listeners, Ann, has gracefully shared her Oma's rhubarb recipe for you to try. Ann says, “This is one of my favourite recipes from my Oma and I have carried on the tradition for family functions. Also easy to adapt to make it gluten/dairy free and is super yummy with strawberries added too!”.

We hope you enjoy Oma's Rhubarb Cake Recipe! Read more for recipe instructions.
