|Mise en place|
It was worth trying, but I won't rush back into raw rhubarb. Chances are, if you can't find any recipe at all for something in this day and age, there's a good reason. But this goes to show you that even experienced cooks with proven track records occasionally hit on a clunker....despite how pretty the dish looks.....
|Looks can be deceiving!|
In searching for interesting recipes that create that sweet and savory flavor marriage (along the lines of my rhubarb relish attempt), I happened upon these--which are tried and true in terms of fruit mixed with other ingredients:
Mango Chutney (thank you seasaltwithfood.com)
Fruit Salsas (thank you greatsalsa.com)
Combos like these are great on fish, pork and chicken, and with grilling season upon us, I'll be rustling up versions of these more proven recipes in the coming weeks. Farewell raw rhubarb. I'll stick with you in desserts.
