Rhubarb is in season!

And what tastes better than rhubarb strawberry pie with vanilla ice-cream! I had some tonight and it was sooo good!

Does anyone else like rhubarb? What do you do with it?

I haven't had rhubarb in years! It used to grow wild back in Ohio from what I remember from childhood. Now i have to buy it in the store if I want it. And it's hard to find out west for some reason. That pie sure sounds tasty though.

If you haven't had strawberry rhubarb pie, you are missing something. It is a wonderful flavor and so amazing with ice cream!

I have just finished a book called My Life in Food by Judith Jones.

She was the editor that basically brought Julia Child and other food luminaries to a broad American audience.

I enjoyed the book though it begs the question: does it count as name dropping if you really were friends with all the famous people?

She gives a recipe for a strawberry rhubarb pie where you cook the rhubarb and it ends up getting topped with raw strawberries because she says she hates the taste of cooked strawberries. I do too, so I may have to try her pie soon..

The answer is nothing! Nothing tastes better than strawberry-rhubarb pie (or jam). Nothing I tell you! It's SO hard to find and I am NOT a baker. Oh drat it Woof Woof Woof! - I love you and hate you for posting this thread!

What? This post is so sad that I'm going to cry with you.

I wish I was closer. I would bake you some pie!

Strawberry rhubarb pie is the BOMB at my restaurant and there would be a customer mutiny if I ran out, which leads me to a funny rhubarb story. It doesn't grow here so I have to special order a 30lb case of chopped frozen from the food merchant. The second time I ordered it I spoke to the partner of the owner who had got the first case for me so when I was putting in my order said, "Oh, and I need the 30lbs of rhubarb too."

Early on the following week the partner called me and said the rhubarb had arrived. "OK," I said, "Just give me a couple of days as I need to reorganize some space here."

He called me two days later and said, "Well, you won't be getting your rhubarb."

"WHAT?" I screeched.

"It's all gone bad," he said.

"How on earth can frozen rhubarb go BAD?"

"Uh ... frozen?"

30 lbs of FRESH rhubarb he had ordered was sitting in a soggy pile in their chill room...

Needless to say that mistake has never been made again. Cheers!
