I just Googled "raw rhubarb" and got BBC recipes:

Some people can eat (and enjoy!) raw rhubarb dipped in sugar or grated onto vanilla ice cream. Others dip it in salt!

You Northerners are a tough lot!!

This is a tender example of what a child sees and experiences and the disillusionment of adulthood. It makes for a good poem and reminds me of a few of my own stories. My only nit is the title. Why tip the hat of the poem when the poem shows what the title tells?
