As the days become hotter and longer, strawberries gain more flavor. They are a fantastic accompaniment to rhubarb. After making loads of apple pies I finally tackled strawberry rhubarb pie without an inkling of its meaning for many. This pie breaks a lot of hearts and brings strangers into the fold to become friends. It is a powerful, powerful pie.

Strawberry rhubarb pie is delicious and incredibly juicy. You want to macerate the fruit for at least 30 minutes before putting it in the pie plate and baking. Lift the fruit out of the juice with your hands or a slotted spoon. Do not add that juice to the pie. I know it sounds counterintuitive. Your pie will create enough liquid on its own as it bakes.

Instead, reserve that liquid and add it to seltzer or tonic water, or braise something in it or freeze it to pull out in some midwinter dark moment of desperation for something different.
