Shaker Rhubarb Pie

Shaker Rhubarb Pie

When harvesting garden rhubarb, choose tender, young shoots, discard the rhubarb leaves—which are toxic—and peel any large, tough stems as you would with celery. Commercially grown rhubarb doesn't need peeling; buy only firm, crisp stalks, and store them in the refrigerator. See the recipe for Shaker Rhubarb Pie »Christopher Hirsheimer
