    Default For the Rhubarb Custard curious

    For those who like rhubarb..... Jean B.sent the linkto the
    ruhbarbinfo.com site . I tried the rhubarb custard pie today. It was
    great. My wife, who is not a rhubarb fan, loved it.







    Rhubarb Custard Pie
    Ingredients:
    Fruit:

    2 1/2 c. rhubarb, diced (3/8" or 1 cm)

    Custard:

    4 eggs (US large)
    1 2/3 c. milk
    3/4 c. sugar
    1/2 tsp salt
    1 tsp vanilla
    Preheat oven to 450 F.
    Prepare your favorite pie crust in sufficient quantity for a 9-inch, one
    crust pie. Put the pastry in a 9" pie pan and bake for 10 minutes, then
    remove from the oven. (This helps assure a fully baked crust under all
    of the liquid.)
    Reduce oven to 325 F.
    While crust is baking, prepare fruit. Wash and dice rhubarb. Prepare
    custard: In a large bowl, beat eggs together, then add milk, sugar, salt
    and vanilla. Mix well. Put fruit in (partially) pre-baked pie shell.
    Spread evenly. Pour custard over fruit. There should be enough custard
    that the fruit floats, but not little fruit that pieces of fruit will
    float apart. Bake an hour (or more), until custard is set.

    Snipped recipe.

    Here's another great rhubarb pie recipe that our family loves.
    It's from Edna Staebler's book "More Food That Really Schmecks"

    Sour Cream Rhubarb Pie

    Pastry for 10 inch pie
    4 cups rhubarb; cut in 1/2 in. pieces
    1 1/2 cups white sugar
    1/3 cup flour
    1 cup sour cream
    TOPPING
    1/2 cup flour
    1/2 cup brown sugar
    1/4 cup butter; softened

    Arrange the rhubarb in the unbaked pie shell. Mix the sugar and flour;
    blend in the sour cream; pour the mixture evenly over the rhubarb.
    Blend the topping ingredients until crumbly; sprinkle the crumbs over
    the rhubarb and bake at 450F for 15 minutes, then at 350F for an
    additional 30 minutes until the fruit is tender, the filling set, and
    the crumbs golden.

    That is similar to the Elmira Peach Pie in the Laura Secord Cookbook. It
    is one of my wife's favourites:


    Prep Time: 15 minutes
    Cook Time: 45 minutes
    Ingredients:
    Pastry for 9-inch pie
    1/3 cup all-purpose flour
    1/2 cup granulated sugar
    1 cup commercial thick sour cream
    5 cups peaches, peeled and quartered
    1/4 cup brown sugar, lightly packed
    Preparation:
    Preheat oven to 450F. Line 9-inch pie plate with pastry. Trim and flute
    edges; do NOT prick pastry.

    With rotary beater, beat flour, sugar, and sour cream (use commercial
    sour cream from store). Arrange flat edge of peach quarters on pastry in
    concentric circles. Pour sour cream mixture on top.

    Bake 15 minutes at 450 degrees F, then lower heat to 350 degrees F and
    bake 25 to 30 minutes or until filling is set. Sprinkle brown sugar over
    hot pie. Broil 1 to 2 minutes till sugar is melted. Serve warm.

    Yield: 6 servings

    Thanks for the review. No set amount of rhubarb? My first stalks
    will probably be ready for consumption this week.

    Don't you consider "2 1/2 c. rhubarb" to be a set amount?

    Glad to be of service. As I said, it is one of my wife's. She is willing
    to make pie pastry to make this one. It really is good. And FWIW, it
    comes fromt he Laura Secord Cookbook, probably the best collection of
    recipes in a cook book that I have ever seen.

    I can't say that I measured the rhubarb accurately, but FWIW, I used the
    leftover pastry to line a medium sized Pyrex bowl and baked it with the
    other two shells. I had excess rhubarb and after filling the first pie
    with rhubarb and custard mix I had more than enough custard left over to
    make another small pie in the Pyrex bowl.

    I have to say that I got rave reviews about the pie from my wife, and
    she doesn't even like rhubarb.
