From Libby's old newspaper clipping. I have made this but not with the meringue. I just mixed the whole egg together and added some nutmeg and 1 cup sugar. This is a really good recipe.

Delicious! I didn't do the meringue and used whole eggs to make the custard. It tasted so good : this is a recipe that I'll be coming back to!

What a nice little recipe! I skipped the meringue part and used whole eggs for the custard (added an extra tablespoon of flour). DH and DS were nuts for it--with their own caveats! DS says, "serve it cold, it tastes better." DH says, "serve it warm, it tastes better." So--YOU decide!!! I used probably 2 or 2 1/2 cups of rhubarb since it's in season right now, and we have LOTS! *ZWT 3 May 2007*
