Judy Spooner: Spring heralds the arrival of rhubarb

Email

My mother loved rhubarb. As I was cutting off the leaves of some freshly picked rhubarb -- a gift from daughter Laura's landlady -- I closed my eyes. I was back in mom's kitchen learning how to chop up rhubarb.

When chopping up the stalks to make rhubarb crunch, I noted the sound as the knife sliced through. There's no other way to get that sound.

Mom made strawberry rhubarb pie, but her favorite was rhubarb sauce.
