How to pick and store rhubarb

The first thing you should know about picking and storing rhubarb is that its leaves are poisonous to humans and pets because they contain oxalic acid, so if you buy rhubarb that still has the leaves attached, please remove the leaves as soon as you bring your rhubarb home. Rhubarb stalks should be firm and free or large blemishes. While rhubarb is typically crimson red, there are also green varieties that are similar in flavor. Keep your rhubarb fresh for up to two weeks by wrapping it loosely in foil and placing it in your refrigerator’s crisper drawer. v
