My experiment for the day was a rhubarb-apple pie.
It all started with my next door neighbour who very kindly gave me a bunch of rhubarb from her garden. I can’t say rhubarb is an ingredient I’m particularly familiar with but I’m always up for trying new flavours (as long as they’re vegan of course!).
My search for the perfect pie crust hasn’t been easy. The store bought crusts are so fluffy and flavourful but the amount of fat they contain is very generous to say the least. When it’s time to make my own I can never bring myself to add these exuberant quantities!
I have previously made a completely fat free pie crust for my crab apple pie. Although that was very tasty, I wanted something crumblier this time! My online searches didn’t prove much help so I just went for it and improvised! I have to say this is my best pie to date, so the experiment was a complete success!!
