Ohiofarmgirl's Adventures in The Good Land is largely a fish out of water tale about how I eventually found my footing on a small farm in an Amish town. We are a mostly organic, somewhat self sufficient, sustainable farm in Ohio. There's action and adventure and I'll always tell you the truth about farming.

Of course I made pie... Apple Rhubarb Crumble pie

Just in case you are wondering what I made with the rhubarb....



Of course I made pie! And the only thing better than a tiny pie is a full-sized pie!

Easy-peasy.... I had a 2 cup bag of frozen baked applesauce in the freezer, plus two cups of chopped fresh rhubarb, cinnamon, brown sugar, tapioca and flour to thicken... poured into a crust made with butter and lard.

Don't forget the crumble topping!  Equal parts of flour, brown sugar, oatmeal, chopped nuts, cut in butter and voila! 

Baked at 400* for 10 minutes then turn the oven down to 350* and bake for an additional 45 minutes or until browned and bubbling.

Any guesses what I'm having for breakfast?
