4th of July All-American Rhubarb Pie

4th of July All-American Rhubarb Pie

Every year, we look forward to Fourth of July celebrations, because any kind of potluck or fun barbecue gathering is sure to involve yummy home-cooked delights and mouth-watering fresh summer fruits. Here, we’ve cooked up an amazing All-American rhubarb pie that’s sure to be a crowd pleaser. So simple, and super festive, everyone will get a kick out of your patriotic spirit, all while enjoying this delicious blend of strawberries, blueberries and rhubarb.DIY All-American Rhubarb Pie Image 02If you’re not already a rhubarb fan, you’ll be a believer after you’ve tasted this pie. Rhubarb is a short season fruit, (or more accurately a vegetable) and we were beginning to think there was a Great Rhubarb Shortage of 2015. It turned out that rainy weather delayed its availability, and it is now at area supermarkets in abundance. Paired with blueberries and summer-sweet strawberries, rhubarb is sure to win you over.DIY All-American Rhubarb Pie Image 03FUN AND FESTIVE FOR THE FOURTH

Ingredients: Crust — use your favorite prepared double pie crust to make it easy

Ingredients: Strawberry-Rhubarb Filling

1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup pie filling enhancer
1/8 teaspoon salt
3 cups lightly packed diced rhubarb, fresh or frozen
2 cups hulled, quartered strawberries, fresh or frozen

Ingredients: Blueberry Filling

2 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons pie filling enhancer
2 cups blueberries, washed and drained
1 1/2 teaspoons lemon juice

To make this pie, just follow this step by step recipe from King Arthur Flour to create this flag-tastic classic. There are two pie fillings you’ll need to make. Use blueberry for under the stars, and rhubarb-strawberry for under the stripe design. Cut your ready-made pie crust top into stars and stripes, seal your edges, and that’s all there is to it! Other than the actual baking, of course. We love to finish this off with a dollop of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream, plus a sprig of fresh mint.DIY All-American Rhubarb Pie Image 04Your guests will be delighted with this incredible fresh fruit and vegetable combination. Since fresh rhubarb comes into season just in time for the 4th, there’s no better way to kick off your fireworks celebration than to treat your guests to this delicious taste of Americana.DIY All-American Rhubarb Pie Image 05
