Rhubarb strawberry pie is my absolute fave! We have several huge clumps of rhubarb at our farm. They have been there forever.
I will share my Rhubarb Bear story:

We were off to the farm, about a 5 1/2 hour drive NE of Calgary. We got away really late and then had some delays with a flat tire on the tent trailer that we were pulling. Arrival was 3AM. Hubby was trying to unhook the trailer, the mosquitoes were in swarms and the bats were trying to catch the mosquitoes. It was very dark with no moonlight, so my job was to hold the flashlight so hubby could see what he was doing. I thought there was a noise behind me, so I shone the flashlight behind me. Instant panic...Yell BEAR!!! and ran as fast as I could to get in the truck. Now, depending on who's telling the story, my daughter's version is that I shoved her out of the way and got in the truck, immediately locking the doors. I really don't think I actually did that. My husband just ignored the entire thing and managed to unhook the trailer without a helper with a light. The BEAR turned out to be a big clump of rhubarb. The kid loves telling this story and calls it The Rhubarb Bear Story.

Funny story, Joanna!
The banner is tasty looking! I have some rhubarb in the fridge that I need to prepare, almost forgot about it until I saw the banner.
I make a Rhubarb Brown Betty that is sooooooooo scrumptious. Maybe I'll find some strawberries tomorrow and cook!
Hurray!

Super banner! I knew what was in that freezer bag the minute I saw it! My DH is from IL. He loves rhubarb pie. I can't seem to make it "like his mother did." I'm not a fan of rhubarb, so I don't know what it should taste like. The brown betty might be my last attempt. Cindi, would you mind sharing that recipe with me?

Thanks everyone for the comments, Acorn tips and Thumbs up ! I tip my hat to you. Smiling

My DH doesn't like rhubarb so I don't bother making pie, my mom used to make a great rhubarb strawberry custard pie. Sticking tongue out I think the 'Brown Betty' would be yummy, but again I wouldn't bother making it for myself.

Good to know, Margaret. I'll continue to watch for local restaurants that have it by the slice. He doesn't need to eat a whole pie!

I agree Sandi, nobody needs a whole pie, way too much fat and sugar in them. nodding

ok, here's the recipe. It's out of Food Network magazine, June 2010. I have modified it to bake in an oven instead of on the grill.
1 cup Panko breadcrumbs
1/4 c. plus 2 T packed light brown sugar
2/3 c. plus 1/4 c. granulated sugar
1 1/2 tsp gound cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground allspice
1/4 tsp ground ginger
pinch of ground cloves
5 stalks rhubarb, cut into 1 inch pieces (about 4 cups)
( I modify this by using 3 stalks rhubarb, and 1 1/2 cups strawberries)
1 tsp lemon juice
1/4 c roughly chopped almonds with skins
4 T cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces, plus more for the skillet

Preheat a grill to medium low. (or oven to 350)
Whisk the panko crumbs, brown sugar, 1/4 c granulated sugar, the cinnamon, allspice, ginger and cloves in a medium bowl until combined.
In another bowl, toss the rhubarb (and cut up strawberries) with the remaining 2/3 c granulated sugar and the lemon juice to coat.
Butter a shallow 8-inch ovenproof skillet or flameproof baking dish. ( I use a 2 QT casserole dish)
Sprinkle 3 T of the breadcrumb mixture in the bottom of the skillet. Top with the rhubarb, then sprinkle with the remaining crumbs and the almonds. Dot with the cut-up butter.
Put the skillet on the center of the grill, close the lid or place a disposable roasting pan over the skillet. Grill until the filling is bubbly and the topping is a golden brown and crisp, 15-20 minutes. (I cook uncovered in the oven for about 25 minutes)
Let cool slightly, about 10 minutes.
Serve warm and top with strawberry ice cream!

Serves 6-8, unknown calorie count.

I've tried it without panko and without the almonds....don't. Both are NECESSARY ingredients.
I also found it better when I used frozen strawberries.
I've taken this to several potlucks, and it's real popular, even among people who swear they don't like rhubarb.

Cindi, this sounds great! What I really love about this is that is does not use flour!!!!! I have celiac disease so can not have gluten. I can make this!!!!!!! I have some gluten free bread crumbs to sub for the panko & as far as the almonds go --- I could do them as directed BUT I use a lot of almond flour in baking so I think I will just use that & see how it turns out. Cool! Thank You!

Usually recipes are too hard to convert but this one will be a cinch. Big Grin
