    The leaves are high in oxalates, the stems not so much. Unless you have a reason to avoid oxalates entirely, it is my opinion that eating rhubarb seasonally is okay — along the lines of moderation.

    Hi Wardee! Thanks for featuring my post. I just picked up another bag of rhubarb yesterday, so I’ve got plans for the weekend. ;-)

    My grandma used to make a wonderful rhubarb pie! But I’ve moved to the south as an adult and haven’t seen anything rhubarb here. I’ve heard it won’t grow down here. :/

    Yeah I’m in va and have a tiny plant I’m nursing. It wont grow because it gets too hot. My strategy is to plant it in a semi shady area to keep it from getting too hot. So far it’s been hanging on for a few years but hasn’t got big enough to use yet.

  5. Michelle Bonsell says

    I sure miss rhubarb. I live in Mexico and am sure that it won’t grow here where I live. So I get it whenever I go home and visit my dad and mom. The rhubarbade looks very refreshing. Someday I will have to try that.thanks for sharing.

    Wardee, I thought you might like to know that I made a fermented version of Laurie’s Rhubarbade using my water kefir grains. It is delicious!!
