Rhubarb Custard Pie -and Rhubarb Recipe Round-Up

This Rhubarb Custard Pie is an honest and true 'old time' recipe that was totally new and very different for us, we thought it was great! The custard is creamy and smooth, there's the warmth of nutmeg, the great pucker power of rhubarb and (for the baker) the ease of no top crust. I'm sure it would be beautiful with red rhubarb but mine is green and I'm determined to use what Mother Nature gifted me:@)
The recipe is fantastic as is but I also think a handful of raisins would be a nice addition, 
and for some reason a little vanilla sounds good too...
Really good stuff folks!

Rhubarb Custard Pie-from Taste of Home
4 C rhubarb, cut approx 1/2" thick
1 - 1 1/2 C sugar-I used 1 C
2 eggs
2 Tblsp cornstarch
3/4 tsp nutmeg-sounds like a lot for our taste, I just grated some in
9" pie crust
  1. Spoon rhubarb into pie crust.
  2. Mix sugar, eggs, cornstarch and nutmeg well. Drizzle custard all over the rhubarb.
  3. Bake at 375 degrees for approx 45 minutes or until crust is golden brown and filling is bubbling.

  5. Lynn, Your pie looks fantastic! I have made rhubarb pie that is a custard pie from the old red and white checked cookbook (Better Homes and Gardens) - the one I received as a wedding gift in 1976. It too is delicious. I also have a rhubarb bar I make; it's called "Rhubarb Meringue." My neighbor recently made and shared a strawberry rhubarb pie and oh, was it ever good! I have plenty of rhubarb in the garden and I need to use it and maybe freeze some for later. Thanks for reminding me!

  11. Love, love, love rhubarb and always have some in my freezer. Special favorite is strawberry-rhubarb pie. My son can't have seeds, so I found that I can dust the rhubarb pieces with strawberry Jell-O and get the taste and the thickening in one fell swoop. Mother used to do something she called "Stewed Rhubarb" that was yummy served warm over ice cream or over an unfrosted cake. Well, now I'm really craving rhubarb. Thanks for the custard idea! Hadn't thought to try that, although I have been thinking of adapting my Sour Cream Apple Pie recipe for rhubarb. Oh my! I just looked to the left and saw Bacon Pickle Ketchup. I'm off again!
