Ingredients: Descriptions and Photos
Rhubarb

(Rhubarb)  The rhubarb petioles (leaf stems) in this photo are a deep red in color, but rhubarb is often sold when it is more greenish in color.  We have not noticed much difference in the flavor, but we prefer the red because we believe it is more nutritious.  Rhubarb is bitter tasting by itself, but great when cooked with fruit.  Select rhubarb that is crisp and free of dried ends.  See the nutritional chart below for raw rhubarb.  We could not find any data for cooked rhubarb without sugar.  If the rhubarb is cooked with other ingredients of a recipe, we would suspect that most of the nutritional value would remain in the finished preparation.

The above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31):  'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.  And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so.   God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV)  Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!  (d-21)
