It's rhubarb time! Evelyn Winchester of Hilton, New York has a sweet way to put this spring crop to use—her moist muffin recipe. "I had several rhubarb plants on our farm in Iowa," Evelyn explains. "Even though I moved east to be closer to my children and grandchildren, I still make these muffins. I even won a ribbon with them at the 4-H bake sale here."
