What is this bulbous bulb and where is it attached to?
More hints (and the answer) after the fold
Okay, one more hint:
It is, believe it or not, rhubarb, Rheum rhabarbarum. Two plants with the right plant being over twenty years old. I’m planing to part the plants (the roots gets parted, to be exact) this autumn, I hope that helps.
Illustrated recipe follows in a couple of days. Should not last more than a week if the weather doesn’t get too cold.
