My husbands favorite pie is any kind that has rhubarb. The man loves it! We have a small patch of it growing outside our kitchen door that amazingly gets left alone by the deer and rabbits. I have a love of rhubarb because it was a family favorite that my grandmother grew.
She would tell us how her grandparents took rhubarb with them as they went west to plant on the Nebraska plains for fruit. I never understood why rhubarb would be considered a fruit for them until we drove across the plains last year and saw how barren some of those places are. Now I cherish the stalks that grow outside my kitchen window and pass the stories down to me kids.
I have cookbooks with a bunch of family recipes for this good stuff....but my favorite so far is the Strawberry Rhubarb Spice Pie we made last Sunday. It was stuffed with fruit and was perfectly spiced...it almost tasted like a really fruity apple pie! If you love a bit of tart and sweet...this pie is for you!!!
