Okay, full disclosure here. In the Strawberry Rhubarb Pie war, we do not have a clear winner!
As I've previously shared, as soon as the first tender rhubarb stalks start poking up thru the warm soil, we start planning our rhubarb cooking and baking. The season is way too short for me, and the list of favorite rhubarb recipes is LONG - so it is always a battle of the favorites!
After the Rhubarb Jam is cooling on the counter, I always move on to the next prioritized Rhubarb recipe - fresh Strawberry Rhubarb Pie!
I always make two - one for the family to enjoy, and one for Skipper to have all to himself. And this is his favorite recipe - and yes, he eats the entire pie - although never at one sitting!
MY favorite recipe is Strawberry Rhubarb CUSTARD Pie, but he prefers this basic Fresh Strawberry Rhubarb Pie. Don't get me wrong, this pie is absolutely delicious - but it's all about what tickles your tastebuds!
The combination of tender rhubarb with ripe juicy strawberries is a fruity match made in heaven. The sweetness of the fruit balances out the tartness of the rhubarb, baking into a beautiful, glorious, sweetly tart RED pie.
The little touch of fresh ground nutmeg in this recipe sets it apart from your typical Strawberry Rhubarb Pie. And I guess that is appropriate - because my hubby is just a little bit "nutty" - just one of the things I love about him!
Hope that you enjoy his favorite recipe more than you love mine - just leaves more of that for the rest of us - but you will have to arm-wrestle him for the last piece!
