My latest box of Pacific Northwest Fresh produce had me pumped about rhubarb.

I've grown up around it, loved the color but never dug in so once I saw it on top I already knew where I wanted to start. I'd been waiting to try a recipe for candied rhubarb that I'd seen a while back and that's when things got really interesting.

Ingredients for candied rhubarb

  • 1-2 stocks of rhubarb
  • 1 cup of sugar

clean and slice thin. Soak in sugar water for 10-15 then bake in the oven 10 minutes at 100 and check for a tacky texture. Curl if you wish and let set
