Dave's Rhubarb Custard Pie with Meringue
A rhubarb-flavored custard pie (not pieces of rhubarb suspended in a custard). This recipe goes back to the 1930s or 40s in my family. As a child, I usually asked for this pie instead of cake for my birthday. Since the rhubarb is cooked down into a slightly chunky custard filling, this recipe does not require tender springtime rhubarb and can be made whenever rhubarb is available (even frozen).
