My mother used to make this. How good it was. I'm glad to be reminded of it...I'll make it in the spring. Thank you.

Thank you very much for this recipe. I love stewed rhubarb (with sugar) and this will probably make it even better!

Strawberries are great, but let's leave the rhubarb out of the equation. Have you ever noticed that after eating it, your teeth feel kind of chalky? A friend of mine teaches chemistry at the University of British Columbia, and he showed me how you could use rhubarb to clean mineral deposits from cooking pots. He said that this is what rhubarb does to your teeth and bones, especially the calcium. I haven't touched rhubarb since, and that was in 1977.

Agree with Maggie W. Wonderful change in the dogs. Thanks for sharing.

Excellent article, these warnings can't be made often enough. In fact there a lot more that could be…

I love going to art galleries, but listening to music also feeds my soul.
