Rhubarb Delight

Lady Slippers by the water's edge
Cook's notes:
Dubbed the "pie plant" by author Laura Ingalls Wilder, rhubarb's most well-known preparation is rhubarb pie. But have you ever heard of Rhubarb Delight? As you know it is not uncommon for recipes to be passed down through generations of families. Perhaps you have some favorite recipes made by one of your family members. This recipe comes from a groom's family in Iowa who passed it along to his new bride in Minnesota.

  1. I have never seen a Lady Slipper flower. Beautiful.

    Speaking of rhubarb, I dug mine up yesterday after years of trying to establish plants moved here from my childhood farm. This year something chewed on them and they died.
