What's a good size for rhubarb?
Think I'd like to freeze, faster than canning, though I don't have a lot of freezer space.
I picked some of my cousin's rhubarb today b/c it was hitting 80 - actually yesterday was pretty warm too, hope that didn't make it bitter.
Some stalks (I picked maybe 1/3 of them from smaller plant) are thin, about as wide as my finger. But the big plant (I picked over half, hope that was right) are much wider - over an inch. Are these OK? Tough? Bitter? Need to peel?
NCHFP doesn't have much info on selecting the stalks. Thanks
