For a spiced pie, omit orange peel and add l/4 teasp numeg. For a pineapple-rhubarb, substitute 1 cup drained crushed pineapple (canned) for 1 cup rhubarb. My pie book has a variety of rhubarb pies but this is the one I make the most.


  • Pastry for 2 crust pie
  • l l/3 cups sugar (I usually use a little less)
  • l/3 cup flour
  • l/2 teasp grated orange peel
  • l/8 teasp salt
  • 4 cups (l/2" pieces) fresh rhubarb
  • 2 tblsp butter


Combine sugar, flour, organe peel and salt. Add to rhubarb.
Place in pastry-lined 9" pie pan and dot with butter.
Adjust top crust (lattice style if preferred) and flute edges to make high-standing rim, cut vents.
Bake in hot oven (425) 40-50 mins of till juice begins to bubble through vents and crust if golden brown.
