strawberry rhubarb pie, grandma style
- 1 1/2 c. sugar
- 3 tbsp. quick cooking tapioca (1/3 c. flour will also work)
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
- 3 c. rhubarb, cut up
- 1 c. fresh strawberries, hulled and sliced
- pastry for 9 in. pie (top and bottom crusts)
- 1 tbsp. butter
mix together sugar, tapioca, salt, nutmeg, rhubarb, and strawberries so that fruit is well coated. let stand for 20 minnutes. in the meantime, make pastry for a double crusted 9 in. pie. place bottom crust into pie pan, and fill with fruit mixture. dot with butter. place top crust onto pie, and crimp to seal. bBake at 400 degrees for 35 to 40 minutes. we like this warm with vanilla ice cream.
NOTE: for a deep dish pie, multiply this recipe by 1.5.
