    Default Dessert Tonight

    I decided to make Rhubarb Custard Cake using Barb Schaller's recipe. I
    plan to serve it with sliced strawberries. Strawberries and rhubarb
    came from our garden.

    Sounds so good!! The strawberry/rhubarb combo is so good.

    I have discovered that a raspberry/rhubarb hold up better when
    combining for a pie. Strawberries just "collapse" when baking in a
    pie. .....but the flavor is good.

    Enjoy your creation...sounds very good.

    Dessert tonight is a rhubarb pie. Sorry, but it is straight rhubarb. I
    refuse to waste good strawberries on a rhubarb when it is pretty close
    to perfect on its own.


    Dang. That pie looks good. I have to get out and grill some steaks
    before the rain returns.

    I love straight rhubarb pie - no "cream," or strawberries, please -
    just rhubarb with a lattice crust. Yum.

    I missed the picture of the pie, Dave. Do you have a link?

    I would be alternating strawberries and rhubarb.

    Rhubarb is out now around here. Strawberries are a good month away.
    Rhubarb needs to be cooked, but strawberries are too good fresh to be
    cooked.

    Use the berries to make a fresh strawberry pie (or shortcake) or make
    jam, or freeze some for making jam in November; use the rhubarb for
    bars, jam, bread, desserts or a combo jam (rhubarb orange is very good).
    But that's just me.

    Rhubarb Pie and Strawberry Shortcake - both fruits can be frozen
    successfully, although the rhubarb tends to get a little mushy.
    Still, where is it written that they have to be combined?? Anyway,
    one could also certainly use them together in a smoothie, which I
    don't like but some people do.

    That's what started this thread, Janet - we were supposed to answer
    the question, "What else do you do when rhubarb and strawberries are
    both ready to harvest?" ;-) A couple of us said we would never ruin
    a rhubarb pie by adding strawberries to it.

    Personally, I think that the best thing to do with nice fresh
    strawberries is to have them as close to natural as possible, plain
    strawberries, or to have them with cream and maybe a bit of sugar, with
    sour cream and brown sugar or slice one ice cream. I do not like
    strawberry pie. If there is a glut of them and you have made as much
    strawberry jam as you can handle, perhaps they can be made into a sauce
    or conserve.


    Rhubarb, IMO, is wonderful stuff with which to make a pie. Strawberry
    does nothing to enhance it, nor does the rhubarb enhance the
    strawberries, IMO, a strawberry rhubarb pie is better than a strawberry
    pie.

    I will be freezing some of each, making jam or jelly out of each one
    and possibly combined. Main thing is that both of us are trying to
    lose weight and have to keep an eye on cholesterol. Slows down pies
    and cakes.

    I agree with you on that. I don't like cooked strawberries, although I'm
    willing to make an exception in the case of a strawberry custard for ice
    cream.
