My parents grew both rhubarb and strawberries, but never combined them into a pie. We had rhubarb pie, which I hated.

Why did my parents hate me so?

Rhubarb is awesome.  Nothing against strawberries, but a straight-up rhubarb pie (or crisp) is glorious!

Never rub another man's rhubarb.

I like rhubarb. Kale, however, should only be fed to livestock.

Rhubarb is fantastic.  Making a rhubarb cake next week for a family reunion, from a recipe suggested in a Fark rhubarb thread last year.

I make stewed rhubarb and have it with my yogurt in the morning, or on the side with sausages for dinner.

Suck it, rhubarb-haters.
 
2018-06-02 9:28:56 AM  
Yeah.... Hey there subs? Have your 'buds checked.

Wife makes an apple rhubarb upside down cake that I'd consider murdering for.

Rhubarb and blackberries also works well.

When I was a kid, we would take a handful of sugar and dip rhubarb in it. Much like the French use snails to eat garlic butter.

Silly subby, rhubarb is a fruit. And it's delicious, like spicy apple.

Strawberry rhubarb weed-infused jam.  When this is legal nationally, no one is going to ever get off the couch.
 
2018-06-02 9:33:16 AM  
You shut your mouth, subby; there was rhubarb crisp at a potluck thing last week and its deliciousness was destroyed.

Rhubarb: Strings growing out of the ground. Only good as a filler in strawberry jam.

The first day I moved into my current home, I baked a glorious apple pie with apples I picked myself. I left it on the counter to cool, and when I returned, every square inch of it was covered in ants.

The only thing worse than a pie covered with ants is biting into a pie that's been ruined with rhubarb.

/Fact, not opinion.

Subby has no idea how crazy local festivals can get.

My nominee for the crazy is Polk Salad, Poke Sallet etc. (there's a ton of slight variations)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phytola​c​ca_americana#Food_uses

You have to boil it three times with fresh water to get the poison out.

And there are five towns that have a festival for it.

We grow rhubarb in the back yard as ornamental due to its rapid growth rate, and we have a short growing season in Central Oregon. Rhubarb festival coming up next weekend in LaPine.

Rhubarb pie is the most glorious desert on the planet. No need to pervert it with fruit.

Rhubarb, for that moment when you are too cheap to buy enough fruit to make a whole pie

I hate rhubarb. However, I have a recipe for rhubarb dump cake that is delicious. I can't remember all the ingredients, but all of those ingredients put together fool my tastebuds.

Oh...  riffing on the "most disgusting vegetable".  I'm okay with okra, especially pickled okra, but the slime can be a little gross.

Now, strawberry rhubarb pie is altogether glorious.

That's why you're supposed to deep-fry it.

do not eat rhubarb and drink Fresca. It will leave a weird film on your teeth.

We used to eat stewed rhubarb.  It was at least 50% w/w of sugar.

live if a town of about 300.  there are rhubarb patches all over town that nobody collects anymore.
the bar/restaurant here gets it all and makes pies/cakes and cookies out of it
those are the first desserts picked 99% of the time

Oh now, don't you hate on okra. It is great in gumbo and soups, and delicious pickled. You have to pick it when it is young or it gets tough and woody. Young okra eaten raw right from the plant is delicious.

Because you were a horrible child and a constant source of disappointment son.

I love rhubarb and have 5 established plants in my garden, 3 of which are almost 10 years old. It looks cool, makes great pies/muffins but I also love to eat it plain. My 4 year old daughter has eaten it with me her entire life and chews on it while we garden. I have a few green and a few red, the reds are sweeter especially when they're little, young stalks. mMmmm

Midwest thing? Don't tell the residents of Sumner, WA then. They claim to be the rhubarb pie capital of the world.
