I was too busy eating rhubarb all weekend to write this post before now... Last summer my mother came for a visit and brought fresh rhubarb from my parent's garden. While she was here we made, hmm, something with rhubarb, I can't really remember now... But I froze the rest to enjoy during the chilly months when summer dreams are floating in everyone's heads. I never got around to it. Now that we're moving, we're cleaning out the freezer, and I decided to make use of that rhubarb, as well as a half recipe of pie crust I had made for Thanksgiving. I ended up making Strawberry-Rhubarb pie. YUM!
Isn't it beeeeutiful?! Now, after I thawed the rhubarb, there was a lot of juice in the container. I drained most of it out so the pie wasn't really runny, but I didn't want to throw it away. I ended up mixing it with some lemon-lime soda. Again, YUM! It was really potent and quite a nice prelude to the pie.
Next up, banana bread!
