Rhubarb & Apple "Butter Crispin"
Serves 8
Nicknamed the “pie plant” due to its popularity in pies, Rhubarb was cultivated for medicinal purposes as early as 2700 B.C. in China. Introduced in the late 18th Century in America, Rhubarb’s petioles (stalks) are often prized in pies, tarts, puddings, breads, jam, jellies and refreshing beverages. Rhubarb requires sweetening to minimize its extreme tartness and is often combined with fresh strawberries, apples, pears or other fruits.
