Big celebrations in Yorkshire today as the rhubarb forcers won EU name status. As reported by the BBC, rhubarb grown by candlelight in an area of Yorkshire known as the Rhubarb Triangle has been given European protected name status.
There are two tips for getting the most out of your rhubarb forcer. One is remembering to put the lid on now. The second is rembering to take the lid off before the stems push it off, otherwise like me you may have to resort to elastic bands to hold the cracked lid together.
