Originally known as Gravelly Bay, Port Colborne dates from 1832 and was renamed after Sir John Colborne, a British war hero and the Lieutenant Governor of Upper Canada at the time of the opening of the new southern terminus of the First Welland Canal in 1833. Port Colborne is one of Canada's largest inland ports and is home to one of the original Dairy Queens.

1 1/2 tsp
4 1/2 c
all purpose flour
chopped fresh rhubarb
Preheat the oven to 350 deg F. In a medium bowl, mix together 2 cups of flour, confectioners' sugar and butter until it forms a dough, or at least the butter is in small crumbs. Press into the bottom of a 9x13 inch baking dish. Bake for 10 minutes in the preheated oven. While this bakes, whisk together the white sugar, salt, flour and eggs in a large bowl. Stir in rhubarb to coat. Spread evenly over the baked crust when it comes out of the oven. Bake for another 35 minutes or until the rhubarb is tender. Cool and cut into squares to serve.
