Today’s featured pie is a true classic, and a favorite of grandmothers across America: the Rhubarb Pie!
Rhubarb pie is a delectable – albeit acquired – taste revered by pie-enthusiasts everywhere. While fair-weather pie fans may prefer apple or cherry, true pastry connoisseurs appreciate the subtle artistry behind rhubarb pie’s balancing act of tartness and sweetness.
In recent years, rhubarb has taken a backseat to sweeter fillings in terms of popularity, although it was once America’s preeminent pie ingredient (earning it the nickname “pie plant”). Benjamin Franklin himself brought the seeds for the red stalked vegetable to America in 1772, although it didn’t catch on as pie fodder until the early 1800′s.
Rhubarb is full of fiber and potassium, as well as Vitamins C and A. Just be careful not to bury its potential health benefits beneath a mountain of sugar as you compliment its rich tart taste. Onward we go, with…
