I am a pie lover true and true. My mother taught me how to make pie and her mother taught her. I am not including the crust recipe here because it's a family recipe and frankly, sometimes we don't share. Everybody does their own thing anyway with crust, some use butter, some Crisco, some do gluten free. So you make your crust any which way you want...here are my innards. Yum.
What you need and what to do:
For one 9"pie
3 cups diced fresh rhubarb
3 cups halved or quartered strawberries
1 tsp grated orange rind (THIS is what makes the pie)
2-1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup flour or a cornstarch/flour mix
Mix all together so all is coated and place in your prepared crust. Dot with 1 TBLS butter, cover with some kind of top leaving vent holes.
Place in 425 degree oven for 10 minutes, reduce heat to 350 and cook til crust is golden, 35 minutes or longer.
