Rhubarb Bars

k you still have rhubarb hanging out in your yard somewhere? I do! And I wanted to try and use it up before winter. I decided to whip up a batch of rhubarb bars. Who says it’s too late to enjoy a little taste of summer? I think I have enough rhubarb left to make at least one more batch before winter! What are your favorite rhubarb recipes?
