Does anyone know of any fun recipes for rhubarb?  Last year I rested the rhubarb completely not knowing its history but this year it would be nice to taste it!

Clari - don't know if this counts as fun, but it's really easy and a big hit here - we eat it as pudding with creme fraiche and then as cake (still with creme fraiche )

overgrown garden help?
