A Slice of Summer Life: Local, Seasonal Pies
A bonus berry blog…
At this time of year, few things taste better than a nice homemade pie with some Kawartha Dairy vanilla ice cream. Pies are not tough to make – and even if they don’t turn out looking so pretty, they will still taste good!
Strawberry-Rhubarb is one of my all-time favourite combinations (for pie, jam, fruit leather, you name it). There are always lots of strawberries and rhubarb at the markets and their seasons overlap…its perfect!
I have included a simple recipe for pie crust, but you can always cheat and buy a crust if you really don’t want to try your hand at the pastry (it isn’t that bad…really!). If you are making your own pastry and it isn’t something you do often, using a tart pan (the kind with the removable bottom) rather than a traditional pie plate can make your life a bit easier. I do recommend baking your pie on a cookie sheet no matter what kind of crust or container you use…it will drip.
