It’s really, really good.
I’m so happy to lastly share a sound strawberry rhubarb pie recipe with you. This is actually a recipe I played about with a few days in the past and while I have weeks of articles stored in my drafts, I couldn’t hold off on sharing this one particular.
How wonderful are rhubarb desserts? It’s taken me many years to warm up to them. Things like strawberry rhubarb pie, rhubarb crisp, crumble, cake, the complete rhubarb shebang. To be honest, strawberry rhubarb pie in no way stood a likelihood when I was expanding up. Mom usually had it close to and while everyone else appeared to rave about it, I couldn’t get on board with… magenta celery pie. I indicate when you’re twelve, you’ll fairly much convince by yourself anything at all and if rhubarb seems to be like celery, I’m certainly not eating it for dessert.
MY MY MY. Search how the tables have turned. In no way did I picture myself saying the phrases “my favored strawberry rhubarb pie” and never ever did I envision myself creating about it on the net because the internet ties up mom and dad’s landline and I want to be a dolphin trainer when I expand up.
Also, what is a site?
18 many years later on, magenta celery pie is at the top of my checklist. Let’s get correct into it simply because I have a hankering this will be your favored recipe for strawberry rhubarb pie also.
Strawberry and rhubarb are meant to be because the sweet flavor of strawberries balances out rhubarb’s tart/sour bite. Rhubarb is great in pies, crumbles, crisps, and the sort because it wants all the sugar it can get. I like to use an practically equal amount of strawberries and rhubarb in the pie filling: about 3 cups of chopped rhubarb to 2 and one/2 cups strawberries. Strawberries allow out so a lot juice, so I like to have a slightly decrease quantity.
If you’ve by no means cooked or baked with rhubarb prior to, have no dread. It’s sold in the grocery retailer with out its leaves (they’re toxic!) and can be prepped the exact same way as celery. Give the stalks a excellent wash, lower off both ends and slice. You’ll want 1/2 inch slices for this pie.
One frequent problem with strawberry rhubarb pie is the total “mushy puddle” predicament. Bottom line: the filling is known to be a soupy mess. I asked around and located that immediate tapioca is generally the resolve. I didn’t have any tapioca in my cupboards and wasn’t about to show my face in the grocery shop Yet again that day, so cornstarch was my option. It was perfect– each and every time I tried it. I didn’t have a sloppy dilemma when cutting into the pie making use of cornstarch, which is specifically what I was hoping for. To combat the mushy puddle predicament, I merely 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 combine of brown and white sugars, which tugs at my heart strings. All hail brown sugar’s flavor!
Also: pats of butter to make issues rich.
I haven’t even pointed out the pie crust nevertheless! I usually use my standard pie crust recipe due to the fact it’s the best of each worlds: flaky and buttery. A combine of shortening and butter create the absolute ideal texture. I won’t get into also much detail these days but shortening helps develop that flaky, melt-in-your-mouth texture. Butter will get us that unparalleled taste. Make confident both of these fats are cold. When the unwanted fat melts as the pie bakes, its steam aids to separate the crust into several flaky layers. You won’t get that with warm butter and warm shortening.
I utilised a lattice pie crust topping due to the fact it’s traditional and stunning. 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 just so I can consume this pie crust as a lot as achievable.
Include coarse sugar on top for a small pie sparkle.
You can switch up the pie’s topping. Possibly 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, ok?
