    MarraMamba's Note:

    Ok ok, not real frog hairs lol. Chef Nelson's wife's family introduced him to this pie. His words on it: "I think the name of this wonderful dessert lends more mystery to it than its actual origin. As any Iowa farm boy could tell you, the hair on a frog is indeed one of Gods finest creations, literally! To put your mind at ease, there is no frog hair in this dessert, but if you look closely at the cooked rhubarb you will notice the fine fibers of the fruit. This appears to be the only explanation for the name that anyone is willing cough up. Although, when you ask Ted Taggart if there is a hidden meaning, he will just sort of smile as though there is a mischievous boyhood tale he's still not willing to divulge. He's funny like that!" from chef2chef So rest assured this warm and comforting dessert won't have frogs leaping out at you :)

      A very nice Rhubarb pie dish, although We would omit the cinnamon in the topping next time. We loved the way you've written out a storyline to the recipe, very intruiging. Thanks for sharing this one.
