Reviews for Spiced Rhubarb Soup
"Sadly I ended up disgracing it because not one of my family of 5 would eat it, including me. Sorry, maybe we just don't like rhubarb"
"A year or two ago, I doubled this recipe and took it to a luncheon with a group of ladies. They loved it. I am going to prepare it again this week for another meeting. I substituted Splenda for the sugar and added a few drops of red food coloring."
