Fruits of Summer...

Rhubarb Custard Bars were a special request from a customer who was putting together a memorial service for her husband. They spent every other week camping at the Driftwood Inn down the street for the last 12 years...walking down to the bakery for their morning sticky bun and coffee. Apparently he really liked Rhubarb, so we picked some from the yard and morphed the lemon bar recipe using orange juice instead of Lemon and stirring in chopped rhubarb. The result was heavenly!

We got our first shipment from Tree Things! Fresh Figs, Blackberries, Blueberries, Cherries and Nectarines.With morning temps below 40 degrees, it will be a while yet before we have local berries... these make the wait a little less long!
