Old-Fashioned Rhubarb Torte
Rhubarb is probably one of the hardiest plants, especially in northern states like mine. It has a tart taste to it, which we really enjoy in our family. Every time I've served this torte to someone who's never had it before, I wind up writing out the recipe for them - and it's my pleasure to share it!
