Everything Rhubarb

Emma Beauchamp, Farmers Markets, Find Local Food, Recipes, Spring

I am a rhubarb fanatic. I’ll eat it straight from the bush, in a pie, in a cocktail, however I can. Rhubarb is such a striking vegetable– those ruby red stalks erupting from the ground topped with their poisonous green foliage (don’t eat those!). Finding these stalks at the farmers market is one of my favorite signs of spring.

Fire Up the Blowtorch! Rhubarb-Honey Crème Brûlée

Emma Beauchamp, Farmers Markets, Recipes, The Local Dish

Crème Brûlée is so much easier than you think! The hardest part was separating the eggs properly…and waiting for the custards to cool!

This month, I teamed up with my friend Julia, a FoodCorps service member in Traverse City and a former (and soon-to-be-returning) professional pastry chef at Martha’s Leelanau Table in Suttons Bay.

Rhubarb Ginger Puree

Michelle Rodriguez, Recipes, Spring

Rhubarb grows in many farms and backyards throughout Michigan. It’s often used in pies as a tart component to an overall sweet dish, but we find that people often struggle with other ways to use it. Michelle Rodriguez shares a delicious recipe for a Rhubarb Ginger Puree to pair with grilled pork or chicken.
