Pie Challenge No. 16: Strawberry Rhubarb

My favorite pie for most of my adult life has been raspberry pie. I never found anything that had that perfect combination of sour and sweet, as well as the super bright taste that means summer to me.

Never, until now, that is!!!!!

We have 4 rhubarb stands in the yard. We have TONS of rhubarb each year. And I am always struggling to find recipes to use it. I am not sure why I never have, but I never made a strawberry rhubarb pie. Yea, I know CRAZY!

And talk about fresh. Less than 2 hrs from being picked this pile of rhubarb…..

Fresh rhubarb

ended up cleaned and chopped. It was mixed with strawberries and lemon zest…..
