Just realised that I’ve made this rhubarb pie weeks ago but did not get a chance to get it posted . We’ve harvested our last rhubarb of the year from our vegetable patch a couple of weeks ago . Decided to make some jam with all of the rhubarb but I’ve a sudden craving for pie ! LOL Yup, I love to make pies & most importantly eating them ! LOL My hubby was not really keen of rhubarb & usually I’ve added some apples in my rhubarb pie just for him . So here again I’m trying my luck with this Martha Stewart's recipe . What did Mr. Bossy says… “Well, it’s tastier with some apples or strawberry “ LOL For me it was delicious not overly sweet coz I’ve reduced the sugar to slightly less than 1 cup . I love the meringue topping that goes well with the tangy rhubarb filling , even my bossy hubby likes it too .
