Have you ever had rhubarb juice? I didn't even know there was such a thing until last year and LOVED IT. So, I set a reminder for the beginning of Rhubarb Juice Season and we're only a week away! Here's all you need to know about making the most refreshing summer drink ever.

My love last year began when my dear friend Tracy "Rhubarb" McCray and her kid Olly made some juice and I tried it (see video). Amazing! Then I remember it was Tracy that also got me to like rhubarb pie. As a kid, my mom made a lot of rhubarb pie, and it was always awful. Bitter and evil. But then, when Tracy's dad passed away, there was a festival of homemade pie for the after-funeral gathering. Tracy nearly forced me to take some rhubarb, and WOW! So good! Rabe was now a rhubarb fan.

And a fresher taste you will never have. Please, get some rhubarb from a neighbor and try this recipe.
