You have to know, that in THIS part of Arizona ( I'm not sure about up north), rhubarb is NOT grown. If I even SEE it, I usually buy some. Now I'm not a HUGE pie maker, but after 25 yrs of marriage, I had NO idea that my husband liked rhubarb! I had made a strawberry rhubarb pie just to try it out while he was on a business trip. I thought he was going to come thru the PHONE when I told him. I LOVE RHUBARB he says...hm...ya learn something new everyday! Well, I have been TOLD that this is NOT fresh rhubarb season (seems it is picked in the spring). I have been searching for about a month for frozen. Today a friend and I were having breakfast at Village Inn. They have pies you can order..so I did...strawberry rhubarb. I told the cashier I have had trouble finding rhubarb...she called her husband who is a manager for a locally owned grocery chain. They HAVE IT! I was so excited you would have thought I had won the lottery! I guess it takes so little to make me happy!
