     What a day we had yesterday.  It was a terrible lot of prep work but it was so worth it.  We had a handful of ladies over for the day and showed them all how to bake pies.  Some of them had of course made pies before but for others it was a first time.  We made so many strawberry-rhubarb pies. 

     We had everyone make their own ‘mini pie’ to take home.  The mini pies were a great idea. They turned out so cute.  They would make such wonderful little gifts for The Fourth of July with a little ribbon tied around one.   I think that my favourite part of the day was seeing everyone with flour on their shirts after they rolled out their pie crusts.  It made me smile.  We had a little potluck lunch and also showed the ladies how to make Strawberry Freezer Jam. 

     Here is the recipe we used for the Pies:

       The Filling 

  • 1 cup of strawberries, halved
  • 4 1/2 cups of cut rhubarb
  • 3/4 cup of sugar
  • 1/3 cup of all-purpose flour
    You can use whatever your favourite pie crust recipe is. If you’d like you can let me know and I’ll post one or two of ours.  You really should go make a pie to bring to some Fourth of July picnic.
