I'm jealous...

I don't even know if they have rhubarb here.

I was thinking, while I'm in MA, the day I'm at my folks' house, I should try and get some of the strawberry rhubarb that my mom planted in the back-yard a few years back. I grew up on that kind of pie: Strawberry rhubarb pie made just with "strawberry rhubarb," no strawberries at all. I don't think I've ever had pie that had both strawberries and rhubarb in it. Have you had both kinds? My mom's rhubarb pie was very tart and sweet all at once. I should get her recipe, too...

Strawberry rhubarb pie without strawberries? I pronounce you infidel! ;)

Seriously, yes, I have had rhubarb pie. Rhubarb grew like a weed for us, and it ended up in every baked good imaginable. Pies, cobblers, bread, cakes, muffins, etc. We also made preserves out of the stuff and even did the pick and eat thing with liberal amounts of sugar on hand.
