Tonight for dessert we had a fresh rhubarb crumble. After I had cleaned up I decided to begin a new project.
Charlotte, one of our fellow recipe contributors gave me a great idea for my Mom and Grandma's old recipes. I got out the big box of recipes and the first thing I pulled out of that box was a folder from the 33rd Provincial Conference of the MB Churches of Winnipeg. It was dated June 9-10 1967. That was 41 years ago today.
My Grandpa H.A. Regehr had written his name on the top of the front cover. I supposed that sometime after the conference the folder was no longer needed for its original purpose and my Grandma decided it would be a perfect place to tuck afew recipes into. Inside I found some most interesting recipes. Amongst them was one torn out of The Carillon News dated Wednesday, June 9 1976. 33 years ago today she probably sat down to read the paper and found something that made her mouth water. No doubt she had a rhubarb plant or two in her yard. The article was titled Recipes for ripe and ready rhubarb. I picked up the next piece from the folder and the title on that article was Stalk the Rhubarb patch for Springtime Dishes.
