    No not the air op rhubarb but the stuff you eat.

    The first real decent pick of the season took place this morning and as a result there are currently four rhubarb custard pies in the oven as well as a good sized pot of stewed rhubarb simmering away on the stove top.

    A whole lot of deliciousness is coming my way later today!

    I would invite you all over for pie and ice cream but I am sure you are way too busy to help out.

    Cheers,

    Jeff

    Mmmm...yum! I'd be there in a heartbeat but even my fondness for rhubarb can't stretch to the air fare to head north. Sorry... :(

    I have rhubarb creme brulee on my menu at work and will have clotted cream and vanilla cheesecake with poached rhubarb on the next when I change the menus in June !

    A favourite ingredient of mine

    My mouth is watering for a piece but being diabetic I must control my urges and restrict myself till dinner time when a piece will come my way.

    Cheers,

    I like strawberry-rhubard pie myself but that does look and sound good.

    You Sir, are the most evil person on this web-site!!! You can apologize by putting a piece of that pie in the mail to me. I'll provide my own Vanilla Ice Cream.

    p.s. I am Diabetic as well, but some things just cannot be turned down.

    The local supermarket sells rhubarb pies for a squid ..I mean 'a pound', not the mollusc, nor the unit of weight(s) in imperial or republic/union measures.
    Since I lack the skills to make my own while certainly having no garden or even a window box (of any sort) to grow some, more than 10 floors up, I might have to go and get one a little latter to reaquaint the tastebuds to a childhood classic.

    The rumours of it tasting better with strawberries sounds intrieging, mmm arrgghhhmmmm *Homer Simpson gargle-drooling sound*, a bit like my beloved taste memory of slice sliced banana on meaty seafoody pizza (7mm - 10mm banana thick slices cooked with a pizza caramelise and get softer, but the natural sugars enhance the meats of fish, beef, pork prawn...)
