Strawberry Rhubarb Pie is the first sign of Spring!

Strawberry Rhubarb Pie means Spring is coming!  The opportunities are endless when it comes to fruit pies and tarts.

 They are perfect choices for beginner pastry chefs and pie bakers.

 And with Spring just around the corner, my mouth starts to water just thinking about all the delicious fruit pies we can make, especially this homemade old fashioned strawberry rhubarb pie!

One of the first plants that usually pops up on a vegetable garden in North America is the lowly rhubarb plant.

Yet when the tender spring stalks are cooked with the right amount of sugar and spice, a delicious pie is the result!

There are lots of strawberry rhubarb pie recipes out there.  Some of my favorites include Brown-eyed Baker and Sally’s Baking Addiction.

Both are experienced food bloggers with amazing recipes!

Combining rhubarb with either fresh or frozen strawberries results in an old fashioned strawberry rhubarb pie.

The taste is like a sweet and tangy ambrosia, with a strawberry rhubarb pie filling that tastes just like homemade strawberry rhubarb jam.  Yum!

The trick to choosing rhubarb for pies is to pick or choose the youngest, tender stalks and peel them.

Thick stalks may look like more, and a shorter way to fill your measuring cup, but the older stalks become woody, and you or your guest will be picking a straw like material out of their teeth.  Need I say more?

Strawberries, rhubarb, sugar and lemon.  An easy combination for a very delicious spring time treat! Following the recipe, prepare the fruit and add the sugar and lemon.

Spoon the strawberry rhubarb filling into your prepared pie crust and bake in the bottom third of your oven.

Always bake fruit pies at a higher temperature for 10 to 15 minutes, and then turn your oven back, just like the instructions set out below.

Doesn’t the lattice top crust look spectacular?

This is very easy to put together, and basically all you do is roll out the top crust, and then using a pastry cutter or pizza cutter even, cut your strips as evenly as you can.

Then you just weave them back and forth!
