  2. We live on a boat at the moment but when we had a house (Lincolnshire) we had loads of rhubarb. Love it! Although I haven’t done it, you can make rhubarb wine. My grandfather used to brew his own wine. To be honest, it tasted terrible but he seemed to like it and claimed it kept his arthritis at bay.

  3. Rhubarb crumble and custard. A great British dish but I am not sure it is as popular as when I was a child. Such an easy crop to grow. We should make more of it!! Was just reading about rhubarb on Wikipedia. An interesting history but don’t east the leaves – poisonous. Interesting to read that rhubarb could help to suppress cancer. Bring on the rhubarb!!!
