Rhubarb

What is rhubarb?  Most Japanese people have probably never heard of it, let alone seen it.  Rhubarb is a vegetable with thick red stalks and big green leaves.  Unlike most other vegetables, you won't see rhubarb tossed into a salad, stir fried, or added to a soup.  It is most often used in dessert recipes and has a sour taste, which is almost always sweetened with sugar.
