Tasty Tuesday

            I was never a fan of rhubarb until I moved to Arkansas and had my first taste of  rhubarb/strawberry pie! Now, it's a annual event and soon to be harvested from my own patch, got 3 in the ground last month! I also love to make rhubarb bread, a tasty loaf that combined with cream cheese or butter, makes for a nice breakfast bread. It's easy to grow and combined with strawberries, makes a wonderful pie for dessert!

Rhubarb Bread

1 c. milk
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
1 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 c. brown sugar
2/3 c. canola oil
1 egg
2 1/2 c. all purpose flour
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1 1/2 c. chopped rhubarb
1/2 c. chopped walnuts
1/4 c. brown sugar
1/2  tsp. cinnamon
1 Tbsp. butter, melted
Preheat oven to 325. Lightly grease 2 loaf pans and set aside. In a small bowl, stir together milk, lemon juice, and vanilla: let stand for 10 min. In a large bowl, mix together 1 1/2 c. brown sugar, oil and egg. Combine the flour, salt and baking soda, stir into sugar mixture along with milk mixture till just combined. Fold in rhubarb and nuts. Pour batter into prepared pans. In a small bowl, combine 1/4 c. brown sugar, cinnamon and melted butter, drizzle over unbaked loaves. Bake for about 40 min. or till a toothpick comes out clean.
