Expert Tips

When buying rhubarb at the grocery store or farmers' market, look for crisp red stalks with blemish-free green leaves. Cut the rhubarb as you would celery; if the stalks are large, cut in half lengthwise before chopping. Rhubarb leaves can be toxic, so be sure to only use the stalks of the plant.

Before starting a baking recipe, check the expiration date on your baking powder to make sure it’s fresh.
