Tarty Tart Tart

Yep, it's Rhubarb season--Yeah!  The first crop in Ontario--time to celebrate :)  I remember my Mom making this when I was a kid, I was too  young to appreciate it's tart deliciousness, but my Dad would eat it by the bowlful, until there was none left!

~and if you are looking for another GREAT Rhubarb recipe, try this: Rhubarb Cake

Stewed Rhubarb
6 cups chopped rhubarb
1/2 cup water
1/2-1 cup sugar 

Combine 1/2 cup sugar and water, bring to a boil.  When sugar is fully dissolved, add rhubarb and simmer about 10 minutes until it gets stringy.  Add up to 1/2 cup more sugar to taste, a little at a time--some rhubarb is tarter than others.

Serve over vanilla ice cream or yogurt.  Also nice over a slice of pound cake.
