Rhubarb is one the harbingers of spring and one of those seasonal items that makes this time of year special. We don't have rhubard growing in the back yard, but this past week we took a trip out to Columbus Flea Market in western Jersey and in the Amish bakery they were selling rhubarb for a dollar a bunch. I had my wife buy some so we could make some rhubarb bars, a recipe we picked up while we were living in Pennsylvania during my seminary days. I think you'll like it.
1 1/3 cups flour
1/2 cup sugar
2/3 cup butter
Combine ingredients and press into a 9x13 cake pan.
2 cups sugar
1/3 cup flour
3 cups chopped rhubard
Mix the filling, spoon into the crust and bake for 45 minutes at 350.
