I love fresh fruit pies, especially strawberry rhubarb. This pie combines the delicious tastes of those amazing fruits with a twist: custard! How yummy does that sound? Now, we are currently neck deep in the throws of winter but that doesn’t stop my heart from longing for spring. I may not have any garden-fresh berries or rhubarb growing in the backyard but I do have a grocery store. I decided to make this pie with fruit from the market and it turned out pretty amazing. I hope you’ll give this yummy pie a shot and surprise your friends and family with it.
I have made many rhubarb-strawberry pies because they are my favourite, but none of them has ever contained custard. When I saw this recipe in a Fine Cooking magazine, I knew I wanted to give it a try. The recipe was for rhubarb custard pie, but I decided I just had to add strawberries. In the meantime, I had to wait patiently until the rhubarb and strawberries in our garden were ready. My rhubarb has been slow to mature this year, so it wasn’t until today that it was ready to be cut. Perfect timing with the strawberries!
