It’s truly, truly good.
I’m so pleased to last but not least share a solid strawberry rhubarb pie recipe with you. This is truly a recipe I played close to with a couple of days ago and even though I have weeks of material stored in my drafts, I couldn’t hold off on sharing this a single.
How wonderful are rhubarb desserts? It’s taken me many years to warm up to them. Issues like strawberry rhubarb pie, rhubarb crisp, crumble, cake, the total rhubarb shebang. To be sincere, strawberry rhubarb pie in no way stood a chance when I was growing up. Mom always had it around and while everybody else appeared to rave about it, I couldn’t get on board with… magenta celery pie. I indicate when you’re twelve, you’ll rather considerably convince by yourself anything at all and if rhubarb appears like celery, I’m surely not consuming it for dessert.
MY MY MY. Appear how the tables have turned. Never did I imagine myself saying the phrases “my favorite strawberry rhubarb pie” and never ever did I envision myself creating about it on the internet because the internet ties up mom and dad’s landline and I want to be a dolphin trainer when I grow up.
Also, what is a site?
18 years later on, magenta celery pie is at the leading of my checklist. Let’s get right into it simply because I have a hankering this will be your favored recipe for strawberry rhubarb pie as well.
Strawberry and rhubarb are meant to be due to the fact the sweet flavor of strawberries balances out rhubarb’s tart/sour bite. Rhubarb is great in pies, crumbles, crisps, and the kind because it wants all the sugar it can get. I like to use an almost equal sum of strawberries and rhubarb in the pie filling: about three cups of chopped rhubarb to 2 and one/two cups strawberries. Strawberries let out so a lot juice, so I like to have a slightly lower sum.
If you’ve never ever cooked or baked with rhubarb before, have no worry. It’s offered in the grocery shop without its leaves (they’re toxic!) and can be prepped the very same way as celery. Give the stalks a good wash, reduce off both ends and slice. You’ll want 1/two inch slices for this pie.
A single common concern with strawberry rhubarb pie is the total “mushy puddle” situation. Bottom line: the filling is known to be a soupy mess. I asked around and identified that instantaneous tapioca is typically the correct. I didn’t have any tapioca in my cupboards and wasn’t about to present my face in the grocery retailer Yet again that day, so cornstarch was my option. It was perfect– every time I attempted it. I didn’t have a sloppy issue when cutting into the pie employing cornstarch, which is specifically what I was hoping for. To combat the mushy puddle circumstance, I basically spooned the filling into the crust– leaving all the pooled liquid behind.
Also in the filling: orange juice. Just a smidge of it– 1 Tablespoon. It pairs so wonderfully with strawberry and rhubarb. Mom likes to use a mix of brown and white sugars, which tugs at my heart strings. All hail brown sugar’s taste!
Also: pats of butter to make factors wealthy.
I haven’t even described the pie crust nevertheless! I constantly use my standard pie crust recipe due to the fact it’s the very best of each worlds: flaky and buttery. A combine of shortening and butter make the absolute greatest texture. I won’t get into as well significantly detail today but shortening aids produce that flaky, melt-in-your-mouth texture. Butter gets us that unparalleled taste. Make certain the two of these fats are cold. When the unwanted fat melts as the pie bakes, its steam helps to separate the crust into several flaky layers. You won’t get that with warm butter and warm shortening.
I used a lattice pie crust topping since it’s traditional and gorgeous. It’s my go-to way to decorate a pie. By the way, do you SEE people flaky layers in the crust? I want to bake 50 pies this summer time just so I can eat this pie crust as significantly as possible.
Include coarse sugar on top for a small pie sparkle.
You can switch up the pie’s topping. Maybe you want a crumble topping like from my apple crumble pie? Go for it.
My only request is that you finish her off with a pile vanilla ice cream. There’s no other way to eat magenta celery pie, okay?
