When harvesting garden rhubarb, choose tender, young shoots, discard the rhubarb leaves—which are toxic—and peel any large, tough stems as you would with celery. Commercially grown rhubarb doesn’t need peeling; buy only firm, crisp stalks, and store them in the refrigerator. See the recipe for Shaker Rhubarb Pie »
