Confit of rhubarb with orange and tarragon

The rhubarb is cooked at a low temperature to maintain its shape and bite.
There are many different types of rhubarb, often green on the inside, but there are also varieties that are red through and through. You can always add a little bit of beet juice to make your rhubarb extra red.
