Rhubarb – Steer Clear of the Leaves

rhubarb

Rhubarb is a popular sweet pie filler (thanks to the extra “kick” it adds), but when too many rhubarb leaves are eaten, a person can be left poisoned due to the toxins they contain. Because of this, it’s recommended to only eat the rhubarb stalk and throw the raw rhubarb leaves in the trash can.
