For Your Reading Pleasure...

From the WIRED SCIENCE blog, an article on an upstart web service called FarmsReach used to coordinate farmers' market vendors and area (Bay area) restaurants specializing in local, sustainable food. We could use something like that here in Columbus, so... yeah... somebody get started on that.

Ahhh, Rhubarb. We meet again.


















Yet another fantastic recipe from Simply Recipes - this time, a wonderfully easy and tasty rhubarb sorbet from guest contributor Garrett McCord (of Vanilla Garlic).


















My only alteration was to add a few drops of food coloring to the finished puree (since my rhubarb was mostly of the green variety), to get that sweet pink color. Next time I think I'll reduce the sugar by 1/2 cup or so to try to retain a bit more of the rhubarb's tart flavor, but this is really good as is, and the recipe makes a generous amount.

Also worth noting - I used a stick blender right in the pan, rather than the method mentioned in the original recipe. It worked great.

So, when you get tired of all those pies and crumbles ... try this. It's a keeper.
