“Rhubarb Pie”

Now I know that lots and lots of people love rhubarb pies, but I have a feeling they really don’t. Rhubarb on its own is a terribly tart flavor, and requires a small mountain of sugar to make the pie edible.

And more often than not, it’s strawberries that complete a rhubarb pie. The rhubarb stalks, tart and nasty as they are, are the best part of the plant. The leaves are toxic, inedible, mostly to repel pesky animals from eating it (I don’t think rhubarb has to worry about that).
