National Strawberry Rhubarb Pie Day
Date When Celebrated : This holiday is always observed on June 9
It's National Strawberry Rhubarb Pie Day, time to enjoy a slice of a pie you many never have tried before. While Strawberry Rhubarb Pie has a long history, dating back to the 1800's, not too many people have ever tried it. Some people, especially the younger crowd, do not even know what rhubarb is.
The rhubarb plant has a long, thick, edible stem with good flavor, but a tart taste. Rhubarb recipes use sugar to sweeten it. The leaves are not eaten, as they are poisonous. Through the years, debate has raged as to whether Rhubarb is a vegetable, or a fruit. It is commonly thought of as a fruit, as this is the way it is used. In actuality, Rhubarb is actually a vegetable.
