When the rhubarb begins to grow in the springtime, you often get a chance to try a tasty new recipe, or maybe even prepare a family favorite that's been enjoyed for years.
However, it seems it's getting a little more difficult to find people who still have rhubarb growing on their property, and have enough to share. Of course, picking your own home-grown rhubarb will taste much better than anything you can get at the grocery store, right?
Thanks to today's social media, it's pretty easy to send out a message through facebook, twitter,etc. and let others know of your need. That's just what Bill Cameron did, earlier this week, and I asked him if he would like to share his recipe, which is a family favorite, passed down from his grandmother, the late Edna Crouse.
