If you don't like rhubarb, you're crazy, simple as that. I was lucky enough to grow up in the Northwest where this unique veggie thrives. I vividly remember it growing along the side of my great-grandmother's house, giant rippled green leaves and red stalks, almost a little prehistoric looking. I get excited when I see it in the farmer's market in early summer. And I dutifully make a pie every year to fill my craving and remember a bit of the past up north. When we moved into this house the first thing that I planted in our garden plot was rhubarb. And, I've been waiting... and waiting. Rhubarb takes at least 3 years to mature and for the first time my plants are looking productive. A few more years of patience and I'll really be in business. Here's the recipe I think I'll be indulging in this year. Come on give it a try, much better than an apple pie any day.
