Rhubarb Pie

Rhubarb typically has a short season from April to June. My friend’s mom has been making Rhubarb Pie for years. When I saw it in her refrigerator, I couldn’t wait to try it and get the recipe to share. Rhubarb are eaten like a fruit though it is technically a vegetable. Don’t eat the leaves as they contain oxalic acid, which is toxic. Because rhubarb is very tart, it’s typically served with berries or sugar. I also didn’t know that in traditional Chinese medicine,¬†rhubarb roots have been used as a laxative¬†for several thousand years. Rhubarb is also high in calcium, vitamin K and antioxidants. If you haven’t tried it before, this pie is well worth the try.
