To detail all of the reasons as to why I am posting last week’s strawberry dessert over this week’s apple tourte would send you into a full on boredom coma in less time than it takes to type Rhubarb. The short (and ample on its own) reason is that I ended up with 4+ lbs of strawberries on Sunday. What I did not end up with is any rhubarb. Actually, I didn’t go looking for it. For the record, I didn’t go looking for the strawberries either. I did happen to have two lonely apples in the fruit bowl. Since I and everyone else within shouting distance has had their fill of apples as a snack until next fall, I quickly decided they would make a great substitute for rhubarb. I don’t like crystallized ginger so I didn’t go looking for it all.
In short, great dessert and I was ready for some dessert. If I get my hands on some rhubarb before I exhaust the 3lbs of remaining strawberries, I might just make it again.
