"When my neighbor, Debbie, called to ask if I'd like some of the fresh rhubarb she'd harvested, I hesitated. I'd never tasted rhubarb, much less cooked with it. Well, she brought me a bucket full and I started looking for recipes. This is the result of several that I combined to make what everyone tells me is a winning combination." — Renee

Just made this, this weekend. Wonderful recipe. Great tastes all combine wonderfully. Just be careful when baking as mine was quite juicy and ran out. Luckily I had a pan underneath and caught all spillage. Once cool it had a wonderful consistency.
Have now made this pie a couple more times, and have fixed the extra juice problem by not adding all the juice from the mixture when putting it in the pie shell, and also by sprinkling a bit of tapioca into the bottom of the shell.
Strawberry Rhubarb Pie is my absolute favorite, but I've never made it until now. My pie turned out excellent, with the perfect consistency and combination of tart and sweet. I reduced the sugar to 1 cup and added 3 tablespoons of quick tapioca to the filling. I wanted to make sure it wasn't runny as well as keep a lot of the tartness from the rhubarb. I don't like to add a lot of sugar to fruit pies because of the natural sweetness of the fruit. Overall, it was delicious!
This turned out great, although it was quite runny. Most pie recipes I use have flour in them, and so the next time I make it I'll add 1/2 cup flour to the mixture (in addition to the cornstarch).
This pie is the best dessert I be ever made! I also added a package of strawberry jello and mixed it in, while c tutting back in the sugar a bit. It helps make it more less runny but keeps some natural flavor. So yummy!
This is the first time we ate strawberry rhubarb pie and we loved it! We don't like things too sweet, so I cut the sugar back by 1/4 cup, but I think I still need to cut it back just a bit more. It has sugar on top of the crust, plus the cinnamon and vanilla in the mix creates a natural sweetener. We will definitely eat this pie again. Five stars!
