Fresh Orange Rhubarb Betty

I love to be surprised by another new artistically crafted dessert that is original and breathtakingly beautiful.  Some are so absolutely stunning and unusual that they really amount to works of art and one almost hates to destroy their beauty by eating them.

However I am equally as thrilled when someone digs into the old worn recipe box and comes up with an old-time favorite that is not necessarily glamorous or stellar in its presentation, but rather heartwarming in the way it satisfies one’s palette and leaves the eater feeling “cozy” and comforted.

That is why I was so pleased to learn that one of my oldest and most favorite dessert recipes was being revived and used for this coming week’s activity. It is a perfect accompaniment for the meal that is not elegant as much as wholesome and hearty. I know that the men are going to enjoy it as you will when you try it, and what a perfect time to make it while the rhubarb patch is at it’s peak.
