It's rhubarb time! Evelyn Winchester of Hilton, New York has a sweet way to put this spring crop to use—her moist muffin recipe. "I had several rhubarb plants on our farm in Iowa," Evelyn explains. "Even though I moved east to be closer to my children and grandchildren, I still make these muffins. I even won a ribbon with them at the 4-H bake sale here."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 29, 2012

"These were great! I made some healthy changes and they still turned out beautifully: subbed lemon soy yogurt for the buttermilk (thinned with a little water), whole wheat pastry flour for the AP flour, and cut the sugar back to 1 cup instead of 1 1/4. Actually, the hint of lemon from the yogurt was great with the rhubarb. Yummy, moist, and fluffy."
