Forgive this horrible picture but, Hooray for Pie! Pie screams summer, like no other.
Rhubarb is generally eaten as a fruit, but it’s botanically a vegetable. Because of rhubarbs superb amount of tang, and the strawberries being so naturally sweet, I figured the ginger would add a bonus flavor. I made this using my moms, ever so famous pie recipe. I had bought this red palm oil from whole foods, and decided its reddish hues would look nice in the crust. Palm oil is extracted from the pulp of the fruit on the African palm tree. This particular brand is cold pressed, and works great for shortening! Sorry for the blurry picture. EEk!
that palm oil is expensive, but rhubarb pie makes it worth the price. i made some cookies with that palm oil and reddish hue was a bit disconcerting.
