Do you love strawberries? Do you love rhubarb? How about mixing those two into a pie filling?
My rhubarb plant is flourishing and begging to be used. So I added strawberries to the grocery list and headed off to the grocery. Once home, I harvested a bunch of rhubarb, tied on my favorite apron and got busy in the kitchen.
Once the pie filling was mixed, I made the pie crust. Yes, I made the crust. I'm not a fan of readi-made crusts but will admit that I've used them in a pinch, but nothing beats homemade pie crust.
Lard makes the best pie crust, so add that to your shopping list and ditch the hydrogenated oil (Crisco). You will be amazed at how tender and flaky your crust will be.
In case you don't have a rhubarb plant growing in your garden, I noticed at the market that they had a nice supply of rhubarb, so if you'd like to try the recipe you should be able to find both the rhubarb and strawberries at your local market.
- My career is in IT. Cooking and photography are among a few of my hobbies. In my spare time, which is most weekends I tie on my apron and exercise my creativity by trying new recipes and adapting them to my tastes. I also have a passion for photography that I incorporate by taking photographs to go along with the recipes I post on my blog. I also enjoy travel, both near and abroad. Meeting new people, new experiences and cultures and oh, not to mention the food! I hope you enjoy my blog.
