Anchorage Alaska Rhubarb of 2013

Anchorage Alaska’s Summer 2013 was phenomenal for growing
rhubarb. This is the first year we have had rhubarb all summer.  June was extremely hot so I watered the
rhubarb. It thrived. August was wet. The rhubarb loved it and continued to
produce.  I used the last of the rhubarb in the following fantastic recipe. As tasty as the recipe is I do not recommend it for breakfast.
Enjoy as a dessert!
