The best rhubarb desserts in Toronto allow you to gaze at rose-tinted treats even when it’s hard to look at life through rose-tinted glasses. These desserts, ranging from pink-tinged truffles to pies chockfull of the tender plant, are one of the tastiest, most fundamental ways to embrace spring.
One of spring’s first crops, rhubarb is a vegetable that tends to find its way into more desserts than savoury dishes. Naturally tart, the stalks are sweetened, sometimes stewed, or mixed with berries, packed into pies, crumbles and all sorts of other treats.
