Anyone else like rhubarb pie?

Wondering if anyone else here likes homemade rhubarb pie. It has a unique taste, but is really good.

DW has been making Rhubarb/apple crisp. Really good with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream, yum.

Despise it. You can have my piece.

We have some rhubarb growing in the garden for strawberry-rhubarb pies this summer!

I love it too, and not mixed with strawberries, straight rhubarb.

Love it. Wish it would grow for me, as my yard is too shaded. And I hate paying for it. This year, I was lucky because I got some from a neighbour.

Yup, with and without strawberries. It puts hair on your chest.

I'm going to have to make some up and try it. I saw it at Walmart this past week.

I know my Mom used to make rhubarb-strawberry pie. I recall my older cousin raving about it, but I don't remember it. I like things on the tart side, I bet I would like it (light on the strawberries and sugar). Sauce could be good on vanilla ice cream?

Can anyone link to a favorite recipe?

I love it and miss it. My wife hates the stuff so there is not much of a chance I'll be getting any pie soon. When I was a kid and everybody had a garden, we had a "patch". That's what everybody called it, your patch. I really like the "stew" which mom made all the time. It just seemed sweeter than the pie which was a little tart. Brings back memories.

I've never had straight rhubarb pie, only strawberry rhubarb (which I like). My favorite pie is probably key lime.

My mom make an terrific rhubarb pie with a custard filling. It's an unbelievable great blend of tart and sweat.

I don't have my recipe book with me now, but this one looks like it is closest to it.

Rhubarb Pie - Rhubarb Pie Recipe

One thing I should point out is that rhubarb leaves are poisonous, so make sure you have them cut off.

LOVED IT! My mom use to make it.
Unfortunately it is one of those things I had to gave up in 2004 when I found out I was insulin resistance.
