It’s always been hard for me to settle on just one or two fruits as my favorites, but strawberries and rhubarb are right up there at or near the top. (Even though technically, I think rhubarb is a vegetable.) I love the two flavors when combined in recipes.

My youngest son, even as a kid, used to request a strawberry rhubarb pie instead of a birthday cake. I guess he inherited that from me! His birthday, being in late December, was not the time of year to find stalks of fresh rhubarb in the markets. But frozen works quite well.

If you love strawberries and rhubarb as much as I do, perhaps you will find an intriguing recipe in this week’s visit. It may be a bit early to find super sweet, perfectly ripe berries, but again, sometimes there are some pretty good frozen ones available...
