Anyone tell which this monster plant is ?
one bite will tell ya
rhubarb leaves are toxic
Look on the web and make up your mind ... looks like rhubarb to me. But @ndcaster is right, leaves are toxic. Stems are what makes the pie .. with lots of sugar.
well then you'll definitely know
My grandma used to make a mean Rhubarb and Apple pie.
The Rhubarb I remember had red in it, maybe that was just after cooking but I think it had red streaks in it before the cooking started.
Looks like rhubarb to me, but yeah, there should be some reddish tinge to the stems.
Definitely don't eat the leaves, and if it is rhubarb then definitely make some rhubarb & apple pie
Not jazz cabbage.
Looks like rhubarb. Only the stalk is edible and most likely it's way too early to use for anything when it's green like that. If it is rhubarb, the stalks will be fibrous and stringy like celery stalks.
And when green like that it's also very astringent - wouldn't recommend biting into it until it turns red. Even then it's pretty "bracing".
Strawberry- rhubarb pie is also a very good thing. Some people even cook the rhubarb down a bit, with sugar before using it as a filling.
According to wiki for skunk cabbage, "Breaking or tearing a leaf produces a pungent but not harmful odor, the source of the plant's common name; it is also foul smelling when it blooms".
Tear off a small piece and give it a whiff, should be able to tell. Unless you're in Tennessee, where the plant is a protected species.
I'm gonna give this a try
take a potato peeler and make wide thin strips of rhubarb
wrap asparagus with them
sauté in butter
coarse salt to finish
Skunk cabbage smells like pot, rhubarb stalks are sour/bitter and make delicious pie!
Try and smoke some of that skunk cabbage..
Make sure its not Hog Weed !
Rhubarb stalks have this, couldn't see them well in your photo.

Dude. Just ask the rooster.
IIRC Skunk Cabbage has smooth-ish leaves and not ripped edges, not rough like that....
