Rhubarb in Texas?

Yes, they had rhubarb at the HEB! Hurrah! So today's project was pie. The heck with all the problems in the world, I was bringing a slice of my roots (Newfane, NY) to my grandchildren today. We made PIE !

Amana Ox Yoke Inn's Rhubarb Custard pie, to be exact.
  • 5 1/2 cups chopped rhubarb

  • 2 1/2 cups Sugar

  • 4 each eggs; lightly beaten

  • 3/4 cup half and half

  • 3/4 tablespoon flour

  • 1/8 tsp Salt

  • double crust pastry for 9 inch pie

  1. Make crust for a 2 crust pie.

  2. Put bottom crust in pie pan; sprinkle with 3/4 tsp flour. (I used 3/4 tbsp in error, but it turned out beautifully).

  3. Mix the rhubarb, sugar, beaten eggs, half and half and salt.

  4. Bake at 375 for 1 1/2 hours.
