From the Author:

Living in the heart of Washington brings great appreciation for the rhubarb season.  Washington State has the ideal climate for growing fresh rhubarb, and is the leading rhubarb producer in the United States, boasting 824 acres of farmland dedicated exclusively to growing rhubarb.
     Most people wonder whether rhubarb is a vegetable or a fruit.  Rhubarb is often mistaken to be a fruit, but it is actually a close relative of garden sorrel and is a member of the vegetable family.  Rhubarb has a unique taste that makes it a favorite in many pies and desserts.
     Rhubarb has an interesting history of facts and folklore.  Some of this folklore is included in this book.  As a poet, I found it enjoyable to color this cookbook with poetry so that readers could savor the metaphorical richness of rhubarb as well as its literal flavor.  Also included in this Rhubarb Delights Cookbook are some articles on history, cultivation, and botanical information, along with some interesting trivia and tidbits.

From the Inside Flap:

Inside this book you will find a collection of delicious rhubarb recipes.  On a hot summer day you can cool off with a tall glass of Rhubarb Strawberry Lemonade, or enjoy a refreshing glass of Rhubarb Ginger Peach Julep.
     Surprise your family and friends by serving Buckwheat Pancakes topped with warm Cherry Rhubarb Sauce for a special breakfast.  Or start your day with some delicious Orange Rhubarb Muffins.
     For entertaining, you may choose to serve Chinese Egg Rolls with Rhubarb Dipping Sauce as an appetizer.
     For that special dinner, try Chicken Breasts with Rhubarb Sauce or Rhubarb Marinated Barbecue Chicken.  Adding a tasty side dish such as Rhubarb Potato Delight or Rhubarb Cornbread Stuffing to your favorite entrée gives your meal a touch of class.
     What better way to finish a meal than serving a traditional homemade rhubarb pie for dessert or try a delicious Rhubarb Blueberry Crumble.
   Snack time might include Rhubarb Ice Cream, Rhubarb Fudge Candy, or a slice of your favorite bread topped with your own homemade Rhubarb Orange Marmalade or Rhubarb Strawberry Jam.
     You can find a recipe for whatever part of a meal you might desire in this comprehensive rhubarb cookbook.
