Today I picked up some rhubarb at the farmers market. At $4 a pound it was a little expensive, but I couldn't resist. I made a rhubarb pie. Rhubarb pie is so easy, especially when you buy pie crust. Yes, I bought the pie crust. Some day when I have a bigger kitchen with ample counter space I will make pie crust from scratch. Until then, I avoid catastrophe by buying Pillsbury.
Looks like celery doesn't it? The sign at the farmer's market said that the color of Rhubarb does not affect the taste. I was a little doubtful, but since I peel the outside anyway I thought I would give it a whirl.
Here's my rhubarb pie. Turns out the farmers were telling the truth. The rhubarb was perfectly tart.
I used 1 1/2 cups of sugar, five pats of butter, a teaspoon of cinnamon, and two cups of rhubarb.
THAT. IS. IT.
