Reviews for Rhubarb/Strawberry Pie
"My husband was very surprised how delicious this pie tasted. He expected it to be really sour. He just kept saying this is really good. I will be baking this pie many more times."
"Excellent taste and consistency."
"Love the blend of rhubarb, strawberries and orange. Great pie!"
"Very good recipe. The orange added an extra level of flavor. I did not use the marmalade and I use clear gel instead of tapioca."
"Nice and tangy"
"The best. Husband and I loved it as did all of my friends. Skipped the marmalade as I didn't want too much orange taste."
"We are really enjoying it but, I used frozen rhubarb & should have drained them some before I mixed them with the sugar. I had way too much liquid and it ran over the edge of my plate when I poured it in. Knowing that there was too much liquid, I baked it on top of a cookie sheet to catch the run over & good thing I did!"
