Connie’s Rhubarb Bread

An extended family favorite.  Mari’s mom, Connie, used to make this and then after she died, a local Rutland baker (and institution) Baba à Louis started making it and now Ruth, Erling’s partner, is a reliable source for this early summer quick bread.  Now that Rhubarb is thriving on the farm, I guess it is time […]

Radiating Influence
