I miss rhubarb pie. My grandmother used to make them. 3Reds doesn’t trust rhubarb or cherry pies. She worries about biting into an especially tart spot.  :-X

My sister stopped by for a visit and I convinced her to try a slice.  I had made my mother's pie dough recipe and that convinced her to try.  She never like rhubarb pie because of the tartness.  She was surprised because this wasn't tart.  There is a little bit of tang to it though.  I would suggest cutting the rhubarb into small pieces and coating well with the honey and sugar.  That should help.  I don't know, but some rhubarb may be more tart than others.
