Whenever I hear the word rhubarb, I always think of my grandma. She made pies every year no matter what. She would only buy rhubarb from a local gardener on her road, he still remembers her fondly. That man is still going strong and I buy it from him now too. It is a family tradition now, every summer I MUST make 2 rhubarb pies. If not, something is seriously wrong! This recipe is the closest to how Grandma's used to taste that I can possibly get it. I have to say, it's really good. Hope you like it!
