No, it’s not red celery. It’s rhubarb. And it’s really, really good. Typically sweetened and cooked into a dessert or into a sauce, the flavor of fresh rhubarb is uniquely tart and tangy. Nature’s Flavors Organic Rhubarb Flavor Powder is vegan, kosher, and gluten-free.
What is rhubarb? Rhubarb is a seasonal stalk that, though is not technically a fruit itself, is treated as one in culinary preparations. Because of its naturally tart flavor, rhubarb is commonly cooked along with sugar or another sweetener in order to help make it more palpable. Common recipes that are created with rhubarb are rhubarb cake, rhubarb pie, rhubarb crumble, rhubarb custard, or even rhubarb sauce. Rhubarb is commonly incorporated into recipes with other fruits. Common combinations for desserts include strawberry rhubarb as well as apple rhubarb. Fun fact: Benjamin Franklin is noted for originally introducing rhubarb to America in 1770, as he sent a crate of it from London along to his friend, John Bartram, who was also responsible for introducing poinsettias and kohlrabi to America as well.
