So luv Rhubarb what a way to do it

In the United Kingdom, the first rhubarb of the year is harvested by candlelight in forcing sheds
where all other light is excluded - a practice that produces a sweeter, more tender stalk

Rhubarb has been used for medical purposes by the Chinese for thousands of years and appears in The Divine Farmer's Herb-Root Classic,
Compiled about 2700 years ago

Imported along the Silk Road, reaching Europe in the 14th century through the ports of Aleppo and Smyrna, and becoming known as "Turkish rhubarb".

Later, when the usual route lay through Russia, "Russian rhubarb" became the familiar term.

The value of rhubarb can be seen in Ruy Gonzáles de Clavijo's report of his embassy in 1403-05 to Timur in Samarkand:
"The best of all merchandise coming to Samarkand was from China: especially silks, satins, musk, rubies, diamonds, pearls, and rhubarb.

Pickled rhubarb is sweet, spicy, and simply put: bracing.

It's a pickle-lover's pickle. A bit can likely cause the weak-willed to suck air in through their teeth after a bite and grip the table. But the flavor, the sweetness, the sour air, the tart slap, and with a spice with enough bite that it leaves marks like a bad (or good) kisser. If you have leftover vinegar after using the pickled rhubarb, reserve it for vinaigrette, cocktails, or whatever else you think needs a tart, astringent sock in the eye.

3 stalks rhubarb
2 star anise
½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
Half cinnamon stick
1 bay leaf
5 whole cloves
5 whole peppercorns
1½ cup white vinegar
¾ cup sugar
¼ teaspoon salt
1 32-ounce canning jar, with lid
