From the Kitchen to the Table, The Kitchen Store in Orangeville

Afternoon social with mom and rhubarb recipes

Semi-Annual Zwilling J. A. Henckels Sale

Hello spring. Did you notice that the rhubarb is sprouting and the asparagus is ready to harvest and the mint is showing itself in your herb garden? It's time to welcome back the peaceful enjoyment of our yards and properties. Outdoor chores don't seem as cruel in the spring as they do in the fall. Let's clean up the patio furniture, rake out the gardens and get the lawn mower tuned up for another season.

Mom would be so happy if you helped with these tasks and simply enjoyed time spent together on Mother's Day, May 10th. Reward your hard work with a relaxing afternoon tea using the Breville IQ Kettle™ Pure and don't forget a special homemade treat like rhubarb pie or crumble.

IQ Kettle™Pure by Breville

Breville KettleTemperature is critical in making proper tea at its best. The popular misconception that boiling water can be used on any variety of tea does you no favors. Each tea type, from green to black and even French press coffee, needs to be prepared at a particular temperature.  

IQ Kettle™Pure by Breville knows the ideal temperatures and has five temperature settings. The 1.7 L kettle also has a Keep Warm Button that maintains the water temperature for 20 minutes.

You will love the glass jug as it is easy to clean and looks so pure.

Rhubarb Pie



  • 4 cups Rhubarb washed and cubed into 1 inch pieces
  • 1 1/3 cups Granulated sugar
  • 6 Tbsp. All purpose flour
  • 1 Tbsp. Butter
  • 1 Double crust frozen pie pastry or recipe


  1. Preheat oven to 450°F
  2. Combine flour and sugar in a bowl
  3. Sprinkle a ¼ of the flour mixture into the bottom of the pie shell. This step eliminates the soggy bottom pie
  4. Heap the rhubarb onto the flour mixture and sprinkle with the remaining flour mixture
  5. Dot with small pieces of butter
  6. Top with top pie crust
  7. Place pie on lowest oven rack, this also ensures a firm bottom crust.

Bake for 15 minutes and then reduce temperature to 350̊ F and continue baking for 40-45 minutes. Serve warm. 

We have other great recipes on our website using rhubarb:
Rhubarb and apple jam
Strawberry Rhubarb crumble
Rhubarb compote

Once a compote is made it can be kept in the refrigerator for up to a week and enjoyed in many ways.  Top ice cream or pancakes with it, or my favourite, use it to make a rhubarb crème brulee with the sauce in the bottom of the ramekin and the custard on top and proceed as for crème brulee.
