After a long cold winter, Spring has finally arrived, what great craic! Craic is an Irish word for fun and enjoyment, typically mixed in with alcohol and music, but still an expression of delight that we can shed our winter clothes and enjoy sun, and a new growing season. I was particularly delighted to see my rhubarb plants already growing and I can’t wait to dig into a fresh stalk of tart delight. Then again I have always preferred sour over sweet.
In any event, rhubarb is one of my favorite vegetables, not least of which is that is likely the easiest plant to take care of. Edwardians simply adored rhubarb, and while I have already shared a few rhubarb recipes (see below) in the next few posts, we will explore more recipes for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Today we start the day off right with healthy rhubarb oatmeal gems (muffins).
