One of the best ways to make sure that you’re making budget-friendly recipes and dishes is to use seasonal produce. Lucky for you, rhubarb and strawberries are in season!
I’ll be honest; I never tried rhubarb until about three years ago. I just never had it growing up. My parents were apple and cherry pie fans. I never knew any other fruit pies, really, unless I bought my own. That’s not to say that I wasn’t a fan of apple pies and cherry pies, because I totally was. They’re still my favorites. (Mainly cherry.)
Then, one day, I was invited over to my previous professor’s home for a chat with a few of my fellow classmates and someone brought a strawberry rhubarb pie. I was a bit hesitant to try it but, at the same time, I was like, “Why not?” After just one bite, I was sold. I couldn’t wait to go back for a second piece.
Now, I can’t wait for the time of year when strawberries and rhubarb are in season. In fact, I spend the rest of the year aimlessly browsing for strawberry rhubarb recipes (especially strawberry rhubarb pie recipes)! This is my rhubarb recipe to-do list for this summer!
