    Rhubarb Custard Pie

    With rhubarb in season, I thought it appropriate to post this recipe.  I don't know who to give credit to.  I found it in my mother's recipe box.

    Set oven at 400 degrees.

    Mix 1 1/2 cups sugar, 1/4 cup flour, 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg and a dash of salt.  Add to 3 beaten eggs and beat smooth.  Stir in 4 cups 1-inch slices of rhubarb.

    Prepare pastry for 9-inch lattice-top pie.  Line 9-inch pie plate with pastry.  Fill with rhubarb mixture.  Dot with 2 tablespoons butter.  Adjust lattice top and seal.  Bake for 50 minutes.

    WOW Mothermitzy, that recipe soounds really great. I am going to a 'garden party' this Friday. Was thinking of bringing a blueberry crisp - but now I may just make yours to bring.
    BTW. blueberries is only 2 for $3 this week at Stop and Shop. Can' t beat that.

    Hi pingo -

    I got some good blues at Trader Joe's last weekend. I like them in a morning smoothie.  I happened across this recipe but haven't actually made it myself, so I can't personally vouch for it.

    Re: Rhubarb Custard Pie

    Would you know it - mm, was looking for rhubarb today at S & S, but no rhubarb. I wanted to make your pie. Oh well!
    I bought some more blue berries  - so it will have to be a blueberry crisp. Which is nice this time of the year - with ice cream, whipped cream or just good old Cool Whip.
    The friend we are visiting is not a dessert maker - so she said bring any dessert you like.
    Actually, she is a terrible cook. The only thing she cannot go wrong with is the salad (with store bought dressing). The rest of the meal is usually awful. I am surprised her husband has survived this long.
    So, I am very happy to bring my own. I am also considering bringing an appetizer. At least we will not starve. Mr. P always argue w/me, every time I accept an invitation from her. (This time, you could have told her we are leaving for Ireland the next day).
    But she has a heart of gold. She will do anything for anyone - if needed. That is more important than 'raw half cooked food'. So far, we have not gotten sick.

    Re: Rhubarb Custard Pie

    Our blueberry bushes are loaded this year, and DH is looking forward to my whipping up some tasty treats. (He does the planting and tending, I do the cooking.) Pingo, would love your crisp recipe if you don't mind. Is it diabetic friendly? I am trying to think of healthy ways to use the berries. You're story cracked me up. We love our friends, of course, but suffering through bad cooking is a sacrifice. mothermitzi, that custard sounds delish! I've given up on using the rhubarb in savory, healthy recipes. Why not live a little, right? We drive to a local pie shop for it, anyway, so nothing gained by avoiding making it at home, although, of course, we'd end up with a WHOLE PIE that way. I can predict what would happen, and it isn't pretty! I'd be as guilty as DH wolfing it down. ~kar

    Hi kargiver -

    I never used rhubarb in anything healthy or savory!  I always baked it in a pie with strawberries. That is my favorite pie.  Lemon meringue is a close second.  I never made this recipe, but I am curious and plan to try it this weekend.  I thought it was appropriate to post, being rhubarb season and all. When I bake these days, three quarters of whatever I make goes right out the door to neighbors and my father.  I have little willpower where sweets are concerned, especially pie.

    Rhubard used to be grown next to sugar beets. For every pound of rhubard you used two pounds of sugar.
