Rhubarb pie is a keenly seasonal dessert and we suggest making it while you can. Home Made Summer takes advantage of the season with a recipe for a sweetly spiced pie starring the stalk, supported by a cast of nutmeg, cinnamon, orange zest, and almond paste.

Tips: Capitalize on the offerings of your local farmers' market and pick up a big bunch to make this pie. It's healthy if it's got vegetables in it, right?

Tweaks: You can find almond paste at nearly any grocery store. But if you want to go seriously homemade, there are several recipes online you can try. Van Boven would be proud.
