Rhubarb is one of the first vegetables that are ready to harvest in the spring. Asparagus, spinach, and other lettuce greens are also ripe for the pickings. But today, my mind is on rhubarb! If I were to describe rhubarb as a tart, undesirable tasting, useless, and crummy piece of produce…I would be on point…mostly. I say mostly because while it tastes like fingernails passing over a chalkboard…it does pack a ‘nutritional punch’! Rhubarb is rich in antioxidants, particularly anthocyanins (which give it its red color) and proanthocyanidins. Now these are big words and bigger words generally mean they are better for you. Google it…it’s true.
In all seriousness though. Sunnyside Pastries has managed to create a rare beauty using rhubarb. It’s not only aesthetically pleasing to the eye but also tactfully appealing to the taste buds. You won’t want to miss this seasonal sensation. I introduce to you, … drum roll...the Rhubarb Crumb Donut!! (cue a heavenly host of angels merging harmonious voices into a celestial conglomeration of adoration).

Hey, with warm weather coming, it’s a good time to mention that we do offer bagged ice in 5-pound bags. These are great to include with your delivery to keep your milk cold. It’s also great to have some ice around to add to drinks:)
