Strawberry Rhubarb Pie

20 Jul

Strawberry Rhubarb Pie is the perfect summertime dessert.  It is refreshing and pairs wonderfully with any dish.  A sweet and tart dessert that will be your new favorite.

This fresh Strawberry Rhubarb Pie recipe comes from my Great Aunt Joe.  She lived in Nicholville, NY, and always grew her own rhubarb, making the most delicious pies.  I loved when we would visit her in the summertime, she always seemed to have a fresh pie ready to eat.  Strawberry Rhubarb Pie is a  sweet dessert, perfect for summertime when everything is in season.

There is something really special about the combination of strawberry and rhubarb, they go so well together.  If you have never had rhubarb, it can be a bit tart.  The strawberries and sugar will help tame the bite.  Rhubarb is a very seasonal item, usually only found in summer, and many stores don’t carry it.  I grow my own, it is really simple and needs hardly any care.  Best of all, it comes back every year, just don’t eat the leaves because they are toxic.

You can make your own rhubarb pie using this same basic recipe with some easy changes.  You’ll want to use 4 cups of rhubarb with no strawberries, and will probably need to increase the sugar to 1 1/3 or 1 2/3 cups to counter the tartness.
