Rhubarb Custard Pie

I'm not sure why making Rhubarb Custard Pie makes me think of simpler times. Maybe because the recipe is from my Grammy Clemmer, a recipe that was likely handed down to her from her grandmother. Maybe it's because rhubarb isn't so much "in fashion" any longer. Nevertheless, I love it! This morning, I had my girlie help me put together our first (hopefully not our last) rhubarb custard pie of the season.

Rhubarb/sugar goodness

I NEVER make my own crust, but today I did. Hand over hand, rolling out the dough.

Just waiting for the scrumptious topping

Look at those chubby hands working hard

Ready to be popped in the oven.
If you look closely, you can even see Bella got flour on her face, signs of a true baker!

You know, I've never really eaten rhubarb anything. I'll have to give this a try sometime. I know we used to have some at my old house that I lived at until I was 6, but I don't think we used it much.

I do believe I'll be needing that recipe, too!

Would you believe I have never eaten rhubarb anything!? How would you describe it's taste? And is it a fruit or vegetable?

I always hear Garrison Keiller singing in my head when anyone mentions rhubarb. :o)

I absolutely love rhubarb! We received three plants last year from a friend. They don't give us much yet, but I did make a rhubarb raspberry pie a couple of weeks ago. I am always hesitant to offer it to guests because most people are oblivious to such pleasures!
