Rhubarb Dream Dessert

Aww . . . July   .  .  . Rhubarb month!    A favorite recipe from Mary Zigan

As a kid, my sister and I would pull the rhubarb out by the root, whole stalk, take a bite and experience its tartness standing right in the hot, hot sunny rhubarb patch. Now the rhubarb is handed to me cut and packaged by a gracious neighbor. The following recipe is one I’ve made three times already this season. I think you will enjoy the way the tart rhubarb and sweet custard make for a very delicious dessert.
