Can you freeze rhubarb?
Growing up, rhubarb grew along the entire edge of our vegetable garden. We picked rhubarb, washed, cut, and froze it all the time. Yes, you can freeze rhubarb! That way it stays fresh and you’ll have a freezer full to do what you want, jams, pies, etc.
Now that we’re in North Carolina, rhubarb, unfortunately doesn’t grow in our area. But, luckily there’s quite a few transplanted Yankees and some of the grocery stores carry it!
If you’re looking for a homemade pie crust recipe, you’ll find it here:
Don’t feel intimidated by homemade pie crust. It’s really not that hard. Just keep your ingredients cold and don’t over work the dough. It’s as simple as that! Don’t you just love a pretty lattice crust?! I put a braid down the center of the pie for a little something extra. But still simple.
Baking a pie in cast iron:
Have you ever baked a pie in cast iron? Don’t be afraid, it’s quite simple! Just spray the bottom of your cast iron with some cooking spray or rub a little canola oil on with a clean paper towel. Then add your bottom crust, filling, top crust, egg wash, and bake. Simple! The bottom crust comes out perfectly. After you eat the pie, simply wash the pan, dry, and oil.
