Rhubarb Sticky Buns! 

We'll have rhubarb coming out our ears pretty soon. These Rhubarb Sticky Buns look like a tasty way to make use of it, and you'll find some fresh ingredients at the Mill City Farmers Market. See below recipe for vendor info. 


1⁄4 cup cold butter
1⁄2 cup packed brown sugar
1   cup chopped rhubarb - fresh, or thawed if frozen (Prairie Hollow Farm, Bean Market, and other vendors)

1⁄3 cup softened butter
1⁄2 cup sugar
1 large egg (Braucher's Sunshine Harvest Farm)
1 1⁄2 cups flour (Sunrise Flour Mill)
2 teaspoons baking powder
1⁄2 teaspoon salt
1⁄4 teaspoon fresh ground nutmeg
1⁄2 cup cream (Kappers' Big Red Barn)

- In a bowl, cut butter into brown sugar till crumbly. Stir in rhubarb. Spoon mixture evenly into 12 WELL GREASED muffin cups (don't use paper liners). Set aside.
