Each year, we grow quite a bit of rhubarb...so the main ingredient when I make this pie is homegrown! It's my favorite rhubarb dessert come spring.
We have six grown children, one who's 15 and five grandchildren.
Whenever my mom and I have a "rhubarb attack", we make this pie!
Although we haven't farmed much of late, my husband and I call the old family homestead home. Our grown son's the fifth generation to live here.
In Grandmother's day, rhubarb was considered a "spring tonic". Although it's technically a vegetable, it is usually served as a fruit. At our house, we used the first rhubarb of the season to make this pie, and later in summer, we'd make a delicious drink with it, cooked, blended and mixed with strawberry punch.
