Strawberry Rhubarb Pie Filling

This simple recipe goes great in parfaits, turnovers, and pie!

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups rhubarb, sliced into roughly 1/2 inch pieces
  • 2 3/4 cups strawberries, chopped
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsps lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp salted butter

Directions:

  1. Add all of the ingredients into a medium sized pot. I used my KitchenAid ceramic pot so it didn’t stick badly to the bottom.
  2. Mix together and cook over medium heat for 5-10 minutes, stirring often so it doesn’t burn to the bottom.
  3. For another 5-10 minutes, bring the heat to simmer.
  4. It’s ready when the rhubarb is soft.

  1. Can you freeze this for use later?

  2. I made this a couple of days ago for a family dinner. It was my first strawberry rhubarb pie and it was amazing! Everyone loved it!

  3. In line with the previous question, I was wondering if it could be canned in mason jars?

    • I have never canned before, so I have no idea if there is a certain thing that needs to be done to the filling. I’m sorry I can’t answer your question.

  4. Have you ever doubled or tripled this recipe? I have so much rhubarb lol

  5. I’m thinking of using it in tart shells. Would it be better to fill the tarts & then bake or bake the shells and then fill them?

  6. It says to cook on medium heat for 5 to 10 mins then it says for the last 5 to 10 mins simmer so are you cooking this for a total of 10 to 20 mins? I’m confused. 

    • I worded that terribly, sorry about that.

      Yes, I believe that I cooked on medium for 5-10 minutes and then an additional 5-10 on a simmer.

  7. Update on my previous comment. I prebaked the tarts & then filled them. I popped them in the fridge to set & topped them with whipped cream. I doubled the recipe & had enough filling for 18 mini tarts, 1 pie, & we used it as a topping on pancakes.
    Incase anyone is interested, I used frozen strawberries and rhubarb that I had in my freezer from last summer. I cooked it for a few extra minutes and it turned out great.

    • Thanks for the update Kirsten! That sounds amazing. I craving strawberry rhubarb pie so bad tonight (my husband and I were talking about it just a bit ago).

  8. I’m trying this tomorrow and it sounds so yummy! Am I able to make the filling and then fill pie and bake crust in oven? I don’t want to over cook the filling?
