STRAWBERRY RHUBARB PIE: National Strawberry Rhubarb Pie Day

Today is National Strawberry Rhubarb Pie Day. Strawberry and Rhubarb go together like Peanut Butter and Jelly. Here's one of my favorite Strawberry Rhubarb Pie recipes! Strawberry Fields Forever! Of course I make this pie with a Chocolate Cookie Crust.

A little info on rhubarb: In culinary use, fresh raw petioles (leaf stalks) are crisp (similar to celery) with a strong, tart taste. Most commonly, the plant's leaf stalks are cooked with sugar and used in pies and other desserts. Rhubarb is usually considered a vegetable. In the United States, however, a New York court decided in 1947 that since it was used in the United States as a fruit, it counted as a fruit for the purposes of regulations and duties. And, a warning: Do not eat or use the leaves. They are deadly.

The following recipe is easy and great. Most people do a two crust pie.. the top crust being a lattice however, I don't think this works with a chocolate crust. You can always do a regular crumble on top! Or make a traditional pie crust and add a lattice crust on top. As always, it's your choice! Enjoy and celebrate the day!


Chocolate Cookie Crust

2 cups chocolate wafers
6 Tbsp unsalted butter (or salted if you're inclined), melted

Melt butter. Put chocolate wafers in plastic bag and crush with spoon or rolling pin. Should be pea-size. Combine melted butter and ground chocolate wafers. Press ingredients into 9 inch buttered pie pan--bottom and up sides. Bake for 10 minutes at 325. Let cool.

3-1/2 cups rhubarb stalks, in 1/2 inch slices
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1-1/2 tsp orange zest
1/4 cup cornstarch
Dash of salt
3 1/2 cups strawberries, cleaned, hulled, quartered (or thinly sliced)

Combine filling ingredients in bowl and toss well.
Spread into prepared crust and bake for 45-50 minutes at 350 degrees or until rhubarb is tender and filling is bubbly.

David Flint did a wonderful, thoughtful, well written piece of journalism with this piece on the new DVD covering the historic, colorful, woebegone railroad though Petersburgh, Berlin, Stephentown, New Lebanon, Brainard, and Old Chatham. His inclusion of never before seen Stephentown Historical Society iamges is a real bonus for Eastwick Press readers. I recognize a labor of love when I see it! Thanks to everyone for their wonderful reviews of the DVD, kind notes, handwritten memories and support of this effort. Jim Jones

My family relocated to Chatham in 1968. As with any ten-year-old in a new place, the first order of business was exploration. My brother and I quickly discovered the remnants of the Rutland ROW literally in our back yard. Even though the rails had been gone for 15 years, many remnants remained, including the maintenance barn and turntable pit. We often walked miles of the roadbed. We then moved on to the stone trestle supports which still stand sentinal to this day crossing Center Street and the Stein Kill Creek. Many an afternoon was spent peering down at Route 66 traffic from the top. On the way to school every day, we often took “The Short Cut” which I later discovered was the former station siding bed. Thanks to Jim Shaughnessy’s excellent book, I finally got a glimpse of the original Chatham terminal station. Thanks for keeping the grand history of the Corkscrew Division alive.

It’s odly coincident how I happened to work at Simmons Machine Tool in Menands with Gary Hewitt an RPI grad engineer, building train wheel shop equipment. Then later I happen to buy his father Leyton’s property at the lower end of Meadowlawn Cemetery in Petersburg on the Rutland Line.
I’ve often wondered why can we be so fascinated with trains,…as I and many have become. Gravity, it is agreed is one of the strangest and most unknown things in the universe and it is largely seen that it affects us mentally. Perhaps trains with all their mass are like the planets passing by,and we naturally are pulled by them, the part of us pulled, a most central hidden part. Maybe it is the heart, that strange heart, known by heart surgeons to seem to contain a brain, and worthy of all it’s poetic attention.

Keep an eye out. If Christie starts demanding that his local Taco Bell post National Guardsmen at the doors to prevent illegals from assembling bean burritos, he’s almost certainly planning on running for President. Which is great. But for my money, I’m more excited by the prospect of Sarah Palin on a Harley Fat Boy announcing that she’s getting in to take America back, Easy Rider style. (h/t Rush Limbaugh)

No growth, an ever-expanding federal Leviathan, a diminution of individual liberty, crony capitalism, high unemployment, profligate spending, and a disjointed foreign policy that seems to favor framing events after they’ve happened? All black things, I guess. Making my pointing out that the employment rate among black men is at a record low under this administration akin to donning my hood for a kind of rhetorical lynching.

Big news for Triumph fans as a 40th Year Anniversary Box Set of their 1981 album Allied Forces will be released on Record Store Day via Round Hill Records on June 20, 2021.

“One of the greatest and most successful Canadian rock bands of all-time, Triumph, first rose to prominence back in the golden era when vinyl was king – and the preferred format of most music fans.

So, it makes perfect sense for TriumphRik Emmett (guitars/vocals), Mike Levine (bass, keyboards) and Gil Moore (drums, vocals) – to be named Record Store Day’s Canadian Ambassadors 2021.

Previous Canadian RSD Ambassadors have included Marie-Mai, The Trews, and The Sheepdogs, and RSD Ambassadors have included Metallica, Pearl Jam, and Brandi Carlile, among others.

To prove this point, the band will also be releasing a Record Store Day exclusive/40th anniversary box set of their classic 1981 album, ‘Allied Forces,’ fully loaded with rare archival content and assorted unearthed gems.

40th Anniversary Allied Forces retro tour book
40th Anniversary Allied Forces retro tour poster
40th Anniversary Allied Forces retro tour pass
Rik Pics (3 Hand Drawn Cartoons)
Handwritten Lyrics (Magic Power, Allied Forces & Fight the Good Fight)

The trio’s first record to be recorded at their studio, MetalWorks, ‘Allied Forces’ spawned such rock radio hits as “Magic Power,” “Fight the Good Fight,” and “Say Goodbye,” as well as the title track, which became an automatic concert favorite. The album was also the highest-charting of the band’s career and earning platinum certification in the States.

“We’re extremely proud of ‘Allied Forces.’ It was the record that started the global rocket ride for us and we’re also excited to share with our fans some really great moments from our archives with this boxset.” – Mike Levine

Memorial Day 2020 will be unlike any other in American history, and that is an understatement.

While it might not be the barbecue and family gathering weekend of recent years, the core sentiments remain-- remember those who gave their lives for our country, remember those who served and survived, and are no longer with us.

As I have said here in the past, Memorial Day has morphed in to a second Veterans Day, a day when we thank all those who wore the uniform. I'm okay with that. Those men and women cannot be thanked enough.

I'll close the serious part as I always do: "Please, remember what the day is all about."

This is the last in my mini series of depth of field experiments. I should note that all the photos were taken at Cathedral Cemetery on Oram Street in Scranton. The staff really had the place looking great, and they should be commended. Also, a huge thank you to all the volunteers who placed flags here, and at cemeteries throughout our area.
