Local Menus Feature Rhubarb

The tart taste of rhubarb transports me to my childhood home on Spokane’s South Hill. A huge, leafy plant sprawled against the fence in our backyard. My dad would hand me a sun-warmed stalk and I’d dip it into a smattering of sugar and munch away. Perhaps if I’d known I was eating a vegetable the thrill might have worn off. But in my ignorance I happily spooned my mom’s rhubarb preserves over pancakes and slurped rhubarb sauce straight from the pot as soon as it cooled. Do you like rhubarb?
