This is the beginning of the rhubarb season in the northern U.S. Rhubarb grows in America and Europe, but some of you may not have access to it. I don’t know if the recipe would work with other fresh fruits, so if anyone tries a variation of the recipe, let me know how it works! Rhubarb is quite tart and acidic, so you would probably want to reduce the sugar if you try other fruits. In fact, did you notice that there is sugar in each of the four layers? No wonder it tastes so good.
