What Part of the Rhubarb Can You Eat?

Stick to the stems if you're eating rhubarb raw—the leaves are poisonous. I repeat: Rhubarb leaves are poisonous. The leaves contain oxalic acid, which can be fatal to both people and pets if consumed in large amounts. (But don't stress, we're talking several pounds' worth of leaves).

The Bake Sale Returns to Its Political Roots

  The Bake Sale Returns to Its Political Roots Bakers Against Racism and other groups of pastry chefs are reimagining the bake sale as a vehicle to raise money for political causes. That’s how Bakers Against Racism was born. Together Velez, Pelini, and chef Rob Rubba (of DC’s OysterOyster) hoped to convince 80 bakers to make 150 desserts to be sold at $8 a piece. “We figured, if there are 80 of us we could raise $96,000,” says Velez.

How to Eat Rhubarb Raw

In its raw state, the "pie plant" is pretty sour. Think Granny Smith apple sour! This is one of the reasons it's often paired with sweeter fruits, like strawberry. To eat rhubarb solo, dip the stalk into sugar or honey to help mellow out that tart taste. You can also whip up a raw rhubarb compote and add it to your morning bowl of homemade yogurt. Its biting acidity goes beautifully with sweet ripe strawberries (of course), mangoes and even coconut.

Rhubarb is a wicked good way to kick up the crunch factor in salads, too. Its sharp flavor makes a mouthwatering foil in sweet fruit salads, but it's a delight in green salads, especially when paired with fennel. You can even add thin strips of raw rhubarb to a slaw.

Stir together cake mix and a 15-ounce can of pumpkin puree until smooth (about 2 minutes).
