Did You Know?…

This recipe is a wonderful mix of sweet and tart, with a sweet, slightly crunchy topping.

Both strawberry recipes and rhubarb recipes are popular in spring and summer when they are fresh and at their best.

This recipe can also be made with frozen fruit too. Just thaw the fruit first and drain off some of the liquid.

Or use it frozen, increase the amount of flour you use to thicken the filling and cook it for a few minutes longer to compensate for the cold fruit mixture.
