Notes

I call this Strawberry Rhubarb pie. Not because it contains strawberries, the particular type of rhubarb I use is referred to as strawberry, because it is red all the way through producing a very red pie. Regular rhubarb, which is more green in color, is much more astringent than the strawberry variety.
