What’s Fresh? Rhubarb!
Local rhubarb from Mammoth Pastures in Ashland, Wis. has made its way into the Co-op this week. Fun fact: the redder the stalk, the sweeter the taste. Low in calories, rhubarb offers B-complex vitamins, vitamin A (especially high in the red varieties), and vitamin K. Enjoy this tart vegetable in this week’s recipes. (Just remember to only eat the stalks. Rhubarb leaves contain high amounts of oxalic acid, which is poisonous.)
