The rhubarb by the sunroom is up and ready to pick so I thought I'd share a couple of recipes that I'm planning to try.
Rhubarb Nut Bread
1 1/2 cup brown sugar 2 1/2 cups flour
2/3 cup liquid shortening 1 1/2 cups fresh rhubarb, diced
1 egg 1/2 cup nuts, chopped
1 cup sour milk (buttermilk) 1 tsp salt
1 tsp soda 1 tsp vanilla
Topping: 1/2 cup sugar, 1 T. butter
Stir in the ingredients in the order given. Pour into two well-greased floured loaf pans. Fill pans 2/3 full. Sprinkle topping evenly over each. Bake at 325 deg. for 40 minutes.
Rhubarb Honey Pie
3 cups rhubarb, cut up butter
1 cup honey 2 crust pastry
2 1/2 T tapioca
Mix honey and tapioca together and pour over rhubarb. Pour into pastry-lined pie pan. Dot wiht butter. Put on top crust. Crimp edges. Brush top with milk and sprinkle with sugar. Bake at 350 deg. for 50 minutes.
Let me know if you try these and how they turned out!
