With Rhubarb being in season this time of year,& on sale, I knew I wanted to make a fresh Strawberry Rhubarb Pie. I must admit,as much as I love it, I had never made one from scratch before, until yesterday. I had made one with a jarred filling, but never from scratch. So with about 10 cookbooks in hand I looked at many different recipes before deciding to try my spin using several different elements from various recipes. This is the version I ended up with that was so tasty, slightly tart & sweet. My husband did not give it time to cool completely, before he dug in. It was great
