Family Recipe Friday - Rhubarb Pie
Although rhubarb has been around for a very long time, some are dating it back to China 2700 B.C. where is was used for medicinal purposes. It moved across Europe and eventually found it's way to North America.
I can't remember a spring without my mother's famous rhubarb pie. I am always jealous of my brother's birthday because it falls in May which means he always gets a rhubarb pie for his birthday.
My mom also likes to stew the rhubarb, it ends up resembling something of an applesauce that she eats with toast for breakfast. Not my favourite, but it was a childhood favourite for Mom..
This week I inherited some rhubarb so I took my first attempt at making a rhubarb pie. I was quite happy with the result.
It's pretty simple and takes put a few minutes to throw together.
2 cups of rhubarb diced
1 cup of white sugar
1 tablespoon of cornstarch
1 tablespoon of melted butter
1 tablespoon of water
Mix the sugar, cornstarch, melted butter, water and eggs. Mix well. Add the diced rhubarb and pour into a 9 inch uncooked pie crust. Bake at 350 F for one hour or until set. Let cool and enjoy.
