Spring is in the air…well it is now, though on Friday we got 5 inches of snow!   How’s that for the first day of spring?   I’m totally ready to celebrate spring now. To me, nothing says spring like fresh berries and rhubarb.

Spring Time with Blueberry and Rhubarb Muffins!

Now that I have a rhubarb connection I’ve been making a lot more with my rhubarb then just jam.   I’ve found some wonderful pie recipes and even cookie recipes.   This is my first muffin recipe using rhubarb but it’s a good one.

what is rhubarb?

Rhubarb is a vegetable known for its edible stalks. The stalks of the plant are usually bright red or pink, although there are also green varieties. While the stalks are edible and have a tart flavor, the leaves of the rhubarb plant are toxic and should not be eaten.

Rhubarb is often used in cooking and baking, especially in desserts and jams. When cooked with sugar, it can be made into pies, crisps, tarts, and compotes. Its tartness pairs well with sweeteners like sugar and fruits,

Most of the time I find that rhubarb is paired with strawberries.  It’s the most common pairing and it’s delicious.

Sweet strawberries with the tart rhubarb make an excellent combination of flavors.   I’ve recently realized that rhubarb pairs well with just about any berry and this blueberry rhubarb combination is no exception.

Blueberry and Rhubarb Muffins

These muffins are easy to make and are great for breakfast, snacks, or even a healthier dessert.   They are made like traditional muffins with added moisture and flavor from the sour cream.

There is a large amount of both blueberries and rhubarb put into the muffins which gives the muffin it’s wonderful sweet and tart flavor.   The blueberries practically burst in your mouth with every bite which is awesome for a later spring or early summer muffin.
