In some parts of the country, rhubarb will soon start to show up in local markets. First used for medicinal purposes in China as early as 2700 B.C., rhubarb is perhaps best known as a pie filling, despite numerous other applications. The leaves of rhubarb can be toxic, but they are normally removed and cleaned before they are sold. When shopping for rhubarb, look for long, firm, and fleshy stalks for optimal taste and freshness.
