Sweet and Healthy

"If you are going to eat dessert, make it a disease fighter.
Rhubarb contains cancer-fighting polyphenols, and if you bake it
rather than serve it raw or stewed, it releases up to 1.5 times
as many antioxidants, according to a new study in Food Chemistry.
Try it: Cut 2 rhubarb stalks into 1" pieces. Place in a 3" baking
dish with 3/4 cup water and 2 tablespoons sugar, honey or other
sweetener. Cover with foil and bake at 350 for 1 hour. Serve chilled
with a scoop of vanilla ice cream."
