Rhubarb Muffins

I think rhubarb is a seriously under rated fruit....uh, or whatever its exact classification is...

In case you don't know, rhubarb looks like...pinkish red celery. Kinda.

Anyway. Its delicious. Its pretty tart, so you need to have some sweetness to balance it. Look for many other rhubarb recipes to come!

Would be great paired with the Strawberry Butter from this blog!
