Comments On - Rhubarb Confession

I cannot see a rhubarb plant without my mouth watering and reacting to the sweet sourness. I LOVE rhubarb.

My husbands' mom shared her family recipe with me for a lemon rhubarb pie. It has a grated whole lemon sans the seeds, some sugar, tapioca and rhubarb in a double crust. Exquisite.

I bet those pies were terrific...and not a little too anything.

Yup, I remember the delight of that first rhubarb pie of the season, our rhubarb picked from Walter's field next door in Kents Hill, Maine. My mother would make the best pies in the world and then we daughters would take lonely old Walter a piece in return for those crisp, sour stalks that somehow ended up in a delectable pie. Have you heard this story before, Judith Ann?

Why not offer up a fruit that is otherwise going to waste. Sounds like you played this one right. Now off to make some of my own rhubarb jam, that sounds delightful.

Saguaro fruit syrup and jam (soon), grilled nopalitos, prickly pear syrup in drinks and jelly, Mesquite flour in Everything, native chiltipine peppers for spice...LOVE the desert food :)

Make a salsa with those nopales, AZ? Food brings us together.

Community! What amazing things can start when we just get out of our "don't bother, don't be bothered" shells and make a small reach out to our neighbors. I'm always amazed at how one bag of cilantro started a wonderful and healthy exchange with the next door family.
Judith, thanks for stealing your way into a nice bit of community. Hmmm, those cactus fruits down the street at Johns place are looking about ripe...
