This Rhubarb Custard Pie is a favorite family pie recipe that we have been making for many years!

Rhubarb is usually considered a vegetable. In the United States, however, a New York court decided in 1947 that since it was used in the United States as a fruit, it counted as a fruit for the purposes of regulations and duties.
