Maybe I'd be a more efficient shopper without all of these constant culinary temptations, but I think there's some value in letting the mind wander a bit in these contexts. Besides, rhubarb season in Denmark is a celebration of sorts. It's well-loved status is due not only to tarts (a favorite of mine), but to rhubarb's role as a symbol of the summertime and a reward for the many months of cold and darkness endured. It's just one of the many new beginnings you can experience through the change of seasons. Maybe it's when you make a big rhubarb pie for your loved ones, or maybe it's when local bakeries start their first offerings of rhubarb muffins and tarts. One thing is for sure, this transition to the season of sunshine and a kitchen full of rhubarb is something to savor. So here I am with a bundle of rhubarb, in search of the perfect recipe. While this is a typical case of an ingredient impulse buy, I wouldn't have wanted it any other way.
