A new use for rhubarb!

I can't wait for the first rhubarb shoots to appear in my garden...when they do, I'll know that spring is really here & that summer won't be too far away! It seems to have been a very long winter & here in the North East of England we are back to the grey, miserable days where it just never seems to get light! I'd much rather have those freezing cold, sunny days with the snow on the ground than these never ending grey.....apart from anything else, the snow covers up all the jobs that are crying out to be done in the garden! :-))

Having made the miniature rhubarb, I had a real urge to have some of the real thing & decided to try something just a little different with the last of my frozen rhubarb from last year....instead of a traditional pie with custard, as wonderful as it is, I made a rhubarb meringue pie!...I can recommend it....the tartness of the rhubarb with the sweetness of the meringue...mmmm. Then, guess what, yep, I had to make a mini version! Sadly I couldn't photograph the two together as there wasn't a crumb left from the real thing!
