#92: Sour Queen of Summer

Rhubarb is extremely sour and almost inedible when raw, but nice and sweet when cooked or baked. Its stalks look quite unobtrusive so it’s easy to overlook them on a supermarket shelf. The way it looks, however, is deceiving and the taste is worth having a second look at it. Summertime is the season when we all can indulge in deliciously sour rhubarb. Rhubarb cake or compote are quite good choices, but my favourite is a rhubarb and strawberry crumble pie. Try it out!
