As a warm up, I used the last of my frozen rhubarb to make a pie for the weekend.
I made two of these for the game feed, but it all got slurped up before I got a bite. Ever since, I have been aching for a taste. This morning is my sweet (or tart in this case) reward. A small slice and a cup of coffee are at my side as I write this....
Cran-Apple Rhubarb Pie
recipe by me

1 cup whole cranberries, fresh or frozen
1 cup chopped rhubarb, fresh or frozen
