I usually pick my rhubarb early in spring but did not get around to it this year. I finally picked it the other day and guess what? It has a much better flavor than when picked early. I cut my rhubarb and sprinkle it with some sugar, not too much, it should be sweet and tart. I bring it to a boil and let it simmer until it breaks down and that is all there is to it.
Wonderful and I love the smell too!
I made some English Muffin toasting bread from a recipe I found at King Arthur's Flour.

They have all kinds of great recipes.
This is a really nice dough to work with.
Here is a really good and very easy recipe to use up okra if you have tons of it in your garden. Just slice it really thin, sprinkle it with about 1/4 cup of flour. Add some salt and pepper.
I added a bit of Cajun spice as well. Scrunch it with your hand until it becomes very slimy and holds together.
Fry small clumps until crispy and browned. These are irresistible.
