Succulent Saturday

For Independence Day, I made a Strawberry Rhubarb Pie. Mentioning this on twitter caused all sorts of comments.  I did not know people were so passionate about rhubarb. I’m firmly on the side of rhubarb lovers, but understand the aversion to it, what with the toxicity and all.

But I wasn’t thrilled with the strawberry rhubarb pies I’d made in the past using other recipes. So I rifled through my cook books and All Recipes and put out a plea for help on twitter. And this is what I came up with. It’s pretty dang good.

The filling gooshed over a bit, making it less pretty. Still yummy!

  2. Preheat oven to 400 and prepare pie crust in a deep dish 9″ pie plate. Pour mixture into crust, dot with butter, and top with 2nd crust.  I prefer a lattice crust, but a whole crust with vents will also work.  Cover edges with foil or a pie crust protector.  Place pie plate on a cookie sheet in the oven to catch spills.
  3. Bake for 35-45 minutes, until crust is golden brown. (Remove the foil for last 10 minutes to brown edges.  Let pie set for an hour or so for filling to set.

    …and do you have a rhubarbAcrisp recipe? I used to have a great one, but can’t find it. Last one I tried from allrecipes came out gooey. I’ll try this when i get home. Cabin oven is unreliable.

    I don’t have one I’m thrilled with. Maybe I’ll try that next. I did a cobbler recipe a couple of weeks ago:

    Summer’s great for experimenting with fruit desserts. Okay, next week look for a crisp recipe!
