“I planted five rhubarb plants in the garden in 2003. Then, I found this recipe comes from "Supercook's supersavers cookbook" (1980). The favour of the dessert is nice. However, we only have it as a treat a couple of time per year as my husband needs to lose weight. I normally use half apple, half rhubarb as I found the original recipe a bit too sharp for me. We also pre-heat the rhubarb mixture before spoon it into the pie dish.”
