Accessories you need



Recipes often state that rhubarb must be red.  Rhubarb however comes in many varieties and colour is not an indication of 'ripeness'.  The 'Victoria' variety, for example, is almost wholly green but is one of the sweetest rhubarb vareities.  The colour of the rhubarb is also affected by the season.  Most varieties will have more red on the stalks in colder weather.
