Top 8 Rhubarb Desserts

I have always loved the tart taste of rhubarb, and it's an easy perennial plant to grow in most areas. It is wonderful in desserts, and pairs nicely with many other fruits. Strawberries and rhubarb are a classic flavor combination.

Here are some of my favorite rhubarb recipes, including an excellent pie, delicious cobbler, and more.
