BETTY'S TIP: When choosing fresh rhubarb, pick the cream of the crop. Stalks will range in color from rosy pink to bright red. Select thin, firm, crisp stalks, and avoid thick or wilted ones. Store rhubarb in the refrigerator, loosely wrapped in plastic wrap, for up to a week. Or slice and freeze it up to six months.
