Heirloom Meals: Savoring Yesterday's Traditions Today

Custard and Roasted Rhubarb on WNYT

Carole Murko of Heirloom Meals shares recipes that use local, in-season ingredients with Dan Bazile, the anchor of the Weekend Show and Tim Drawbridge, the weatherman on Newschannel13, Albany, NY. Egg production in naturally pasture-raised chickens is high this time of year because it is directly related to the number of hours in the day. For farm-fresh organic eggs, try www.peteandgerrys.com. I also have an abundance of rhubarb. So, why not serve up a simple comfort food, vanilla custard dessert as an perfect ending to an early summer barbecue. The tartness of the rhubarb is slightly tamed by the maple syrup and offers an amazing complement to the smooth creaminess of the custard.
