Let's dive into the world of flaky crusts, juicy fillings, and the irresistible taste of summer!
The Perfect Harmony of Flavors: Strawberry and rhubarb make a match made in pie heaven. The natural sweetness of strawberries pairs beautifully with the tartness of rhubarb, resulting in a balanced and mouthwatering flavor combination. Laurel Hill Jams & Jellies' strawberry rhubarb jam encapsulates this harmony, providing a convenient and delicious way to infuse your pie with the vibrant essence of these seasonal fruits.
Creating the Perfect Strawberry Rhubarb Pie: Follow these simple steps to create a memorable strawberry rhubarb pie using Laurel Hill Jams & Jellies:
Prepare the Crust: Start by making or purchasing your favorite pie crust. Whether you opt for a traditional flaky crust or a buttery graham cracker crust, ensure it complements the flavors of the filling.
Mix the Filling: In a mixing bowl, combine fresh strawberries (hulled and sliced) and chopped rhubarb with Laurel Hill's strawberry rhubarb jam. The jam adds an extra burst of flavor and helps bind the filling together. Add a touch of sugar, a squeeze of lemon juice, and a sprinkle of cornstarch for thickening.
Assemble and Bake: Roll out the pie crust and line a pie dish with it. Pour the strawberry rhubarb filling into the crust, making sure it's evenly distributed. You can get creative with lattice work or a full crust topping. Brush the top crust with an egg wash for a golden finish. Bake the pie until the crust is golden brown and the filling is bubbling.
Serve and Enjoy: Allow the pie to cool before slicing into it. Serve it as is or with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream. The delightful combination of sweet strawberries, tangy rhubarb, and the unique touch of Laurel Hill's strawberry rhubarb jam will have everyone craving seconds.
Embrace the Versatility: While National Strawberry Rhubarb Pie Day is the perfect occasion to indulge in this classic dessert, don't limit yourself to just one day of enjoyment. Laurel Hill's strawberry rhubarb jam can be used in various other culinary creations, such as thumbprint cookies, breakfast pastries, or even as a topping for toast or yogurt.
