Recipe Round-Up: Rhubarb Romance

Rhubarb is a polarizing ingredient, I've found. You either despise it or - like me - it's an annual obsession.

I wait, impatiently, for it to appear in markets and then I buy it up by the armful because I know that it'll be gone in the blink of an eye. Even my boys get excited when they see those ruby stalks. See! We clearly love our rhubarb.

I enjoyed this piece about rhubarb on NPR's The Kitchen Window.

And, because I wanted to try some new recipes, featuring this beloved stalk, I put out a call for recipes to the foodies in the blogosphere. They answered with some amazing looking creations that made me want to stick a fork in my monitor. Delish.

Quick Pickled Red Onions and Radishes

If you've been reading my blog for even a short amount of time, you probably know how much I love to pickle things. I was just telling a friend you can pickle - with vinegar - or you can ferment - with salt - for similar delicious effect. The latter has digestive benefits and I love to do that, but when I need that pop of sour flavor quickly, I whip up quick pickles that are ready in as little as a day or two. I've Pickled Blueberries , Pickled Asparagus , Pickled Cranberries , Pickled Pumpkin , and even Pickled Chard Stems ! This I did last night for an upcoming recipe challenge that requires I include radishes. Ummmm...of course I'm pickling them! Ingredients  makes 1 quart jar radishes, trimmed and sliced organic red onions, peeled and thinly sliced (I used a mandolin slicer) 3/4 C vinegar (I used white distilled vinegar) 3/4 C water 3 T organic granulated sugar 1 T salt (I used some grey sea salt) 6 to 8 grinds of black pepper Proce
