Did you know there was such a thing as National Strawberry Rhubarb Pie Day?!?! Well, there is, and it's today! Who knew?!
Well, truth be told, I don't really like pie that much. I also don't liked baked fruit....but, did you know rhubarb is a veggie? Whacko. Also, did you know rhubarb has laxative properties? So, basically I'm going to talk to you about a pie that is made with vegetables and can make you poop. I know, you can hardly wait! :) Hahaha...oh my goodness, what's up with me today?
Seriously though...ok, not too seriously because it is still me after all, we have a jumbo patch of rhubarb that grows in one of our fields, and I've never, in the 4+ years I've lived in this house, used it for anything! I have occasionally pulled a stalk out to eat raw (it's crazy sour, but if you peel the 'skin' back, it's only moderately sour, and somehow refreshing!), but that was all it ever did.
Until I heard there was a National Strawberry Rhubarb Pie Day!
If there was ever a time to decide to walk the 40 ft out my back door and pick some fresh rhubarb for something, it was for today!
This paleo, bare bottom pie is really very simple to make, and it's 'bare bottom' because I didn't think a paleo crust could stand up to the juiciness of the fruit (...um, and veg), so I just made it a top! I could have also just crumbled it on top, but it isn't national Strawberry Rhubarb Crumble Day now is it?

For the filling
For the crust
I've actually never seen rhubarb at the grocery store or even a farmers market...I suppose it must be somewhere though! If anyone lives close to me, feel free to come and collect some of mine for free!
So, on this National Strawberry Rhubarb Pie Day, I bid you farewell! :)
Do you have any rhubarb stories to tell? Any yummy or different ways to prepare it? Do share!
