Erin SheehanOur rhubarb patch has plants from three sources: my mom and two of our neighbors. After just a couple of years the plants have taken hold and we harvest enough for several pies, muffins, rhubarb wine and jam.

Rhubarb is delicious and loaded with vitamin C and vitamin K. It pretty much grows like a weed once you get it in, so it’s worthwhile to try to track some down if you don’t already have a patch out back.

We made a Rhubarb Pie last weekend with our first harvest of the season. I know most people like to mix rhubarb with strawberries in a pie, but this recipe may surprise you. The addition of a little orange peel makes it delicious! Straight rhubarb pie needs a fair bit of sugar to balance the tartness of the rhubarb, but that's OK, we only eat it a few times a year, right?
