Strawberry Rhubarb Pie

If you look closely at this picture (past my son, covered in mud, who is looking for worms) you will see a rhubarb plant in the background. This plant was purchased for $10 from a lady on Used Victoria. It has been going strong for the past four years, but this year has been its best yield ever. This year we have harvested it at least three times and I am assuming there will be at least two more harvests this summer.

We have been harvesting the rhubarb (and freezing it) while waiting for a chance to purchase some yummy strawberries. It was time to harvest the rhubarb again and strawberries were all over the grocery stores just waiting for us to purchase them (and at a decent price too). Now, I keep wishing that I lived closer to Dawn from 5 Kids and a Dog because she has an abundance of strawberries. You can read about her Strawberry Harvest and More Strawberries.

We were also given a case of pre-made pie crusts (with no egg or dairy too), so I jumped at the chance to make pies. So far we have made four hamburger pies, one big chicken pot pie, two cherry pies, and two strawberry rhubarb pies. The crust dough came in a box that you store in the fridge, they were all rolled out and you just needed to lay them on the pie plate (how easy is that?).

I took this Strawberry Rhubarb Pie Recipe and whipped up the pie filling to use in our pre-made crusts. This was one of the pies before they were baked. Unfortunately, they were all gone before I could get another picture of them.

What is your favorite kind of pie? If you don’t like pie, what is your favorite dessert?

  1. Wow! This is my husband’s absolute FAVORITE pie! I try to make it for holidays but I struggle to find the rhubarb in our New Orleans grocery stores! Perhaps I should grow my own! Thanks for this!

    It made me smile because my husband loves it when I make pies!

    1. Hi Penny,

      The pie was awesome. We will definitely be making it again. Maybe you could find frozen rhubarb if you can’t find fresh?


  2. Hey thanks for the shout-out. Our strawberry harvest is over but we have a bunch to work with now. I also have rhubarb (thanks for the reminder!) in the freezer, so I may need to try your pie recipe! :)

    1. Hi Dawn,

      I am out of strawberries in the freezer now. I still have some raspberries, blueberries, and rhubarb. We made our own jam (with some frozen berries) for toast earlier this week. It was yummy.

      It is almost blackberry season so we will have a freezer full of those soon.


  3. The pie looks delicious! I’ve never had rhubarb pie but my mom would tell stories of how it would grow wild when she was a kid. So wonderful to enjoy a tasty treat and know where nearly all the ingredients came from and have been responsible for helping to grow them.


    1. Hi Sara,

      It was delicious. You should try strawberry-rhubarb pie if you ever get the chance. I think the only thing that would have made it better was vanilla ice cream.

      It was so cool watching the kids during the harvest of the rhubarb. Dad was picking off the leaves and the kids were taking them inside. Some of the leaves were as tall as the twins (just over 2 feet). They kind of looked like palm branches (at least that is what it made me think of).
