A RECORDED PROGRAM
Technically a vegetable, we've come to think of rhubarb as a fruit because of the way it's used in most kitchens. It became popular in England in the 19th Century when a new variety named 'Victoria' was introduced as a commemorative of Queen Victoria's coronation in 1837. Chef Cynthia Triolo will teach you some recipes, both old and new, that star this versatile vegetable/fruit.
Register now and receive the link and recipes for this recorded cooking demonstration.
Visitors to The Frelinghuysen Arboretum have much to look forward to as they stroll the various areas of the property, i.e., shade gardens, flower beds in full sun or several water features. Here are some of the plants to be enjoyed this week.
Colorful foliage of the Codiaeum variegatum (Garden Croton), Nepenthes alata (Tropical Pitcher Plant), twin Fuschia flowers, the enormous and very fragrant flower of Magnolia grandiflora cv. Edith Bogue (Southern Magnolia cultivar) and the flowers of a different Fuschia, possibly Fuschia Gartenmeister. Enjoy the photos, or better yet come see the plants and flowers in person!
