It's Rhubarb time here in Eastern Quebec
 Savour the flavours of Spring

 Maple Syrup adds to the delicious flavour

Rhubarb Mixture

4 cups Rhubarb cut up 
or 1 package 600g frozen Rhubarb
1 cup water
3/4 cups maple syrup

Dumplings Mixture
1 cup Flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tbsp sugar
1/4 tsp salt

heat and cook 10 minutes.

In a bowl mix four, baking powder,

Cut in butter until mixture is crumbly.
Add milk and mix together with a fork.
Drop spoonfuls of dough on

Cover and cook without
removing the cover,  for 15 minutes.

I harvest my own rhubarb.
A perennial that's very easy to grow,
with minimal work.
