Fresh Rhubarb Pie ! yummy

The first thing that came into my mind, when I first saw the fresh Rhubarb in the garden of my beloved, is to make a pie! This famous plant that has culinary and medicinal uses by its stems and very toxic by its leaves...

So I have cut about 4 stems and prepared this lovely " PIE" !

it was delicious in my opinion, as it was not tooo sweet ( the rhubarb has a tart taste)

The recipe that I have followed is the following:


  • 4 cups chopped rhubarb
  • 1 1/3 cups white sugar
  • 6 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 recipe pastry for a 9 inch double crust pie


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).
  2. Combine sugar and flour. Sprinkle 1/4 of it over pastry in pie plate. Heap rhubarb over this mixture. Sprinkle with remaining sugar and flour. Dot with small pieces of butter. Cover with top crust.
  3. Place pie on lowest rack in oven. Bake for 15 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C), and continue baking for 40 to 45 minutes. Serve warm or cold.

Good Appetite :)
