This morning I woke up and had the plan to make Strawberry Rhubarb Cream Cheese Turnovers and that was it. Now it’s turned into the turnovers, a strawberry rhubarb yogurt parfait and this recipe for strawberry rhubarb pie filling.

Originally, I was going to use Sally’s Baking Addiction’s recipe for Strawberry Rhubarb Pie and simply cook it down, but I ended up changing the ingredients slightly and the cooking method so mid-way through the simmering process I opted to bust out my DSLR (aka Bertha) and share the recipe. That being said, if you’re looking for a delicious strawberry rhubarb pie recipe where you don’t have to cook the filling first, I recommend hers. I bet it’s phenomenal.

Calories 114kcal


  • 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


  • 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.
  • Mix together and cook over medium heat for 5-10 minutes, stirring often so it doesn't burn to the bottom.
  • For another 5-10 minutes, bring the heat to simmer.
  • It's ready when the rhubarb is soft.



If you find that it's getting too thick, add water (like I do in the video).

  1. Hi!!! I make double batches of this and freeze it in containers. It’s great as a spread, on cheesecake, ice cream, fingers, and in pies of course!!!!

  2. How well does this freeze? Also how long in the freezer if so? I’d like to make a large batch To have on hand when the season has past. 

    • Hey Sarah,

      I have only frozen it once, but used it the next week and it seemed to work fine.

      I believe in the comments I have someone who froze it and it turned out well. If you try it, please let me know how it worked out 🙂

  3. I freeze mine all the time. I make in the summer and cook it up in the winter.  I wash and clean the rubarb and cut into pieces I’d use for pie. I double bag in freezer bags and use all winter. I’ve kept in up to 6 months and just thawed it out to use. I pull it out of the freezer and place in a colander to defrost. I then pat til dry before using.  Love your recipies

  4. First time making Strawberry Rhubarb pie filling and this was so easy and delicious!! I could eat it out of the pan with a spoon!!! Just enough sweetness too! Thanks

  5. I just saw a recipe from Bewitchin Kitchen for Strawberry Rhubarb Pie.I normally do not comment on any recipe I try because it usually is long after I get it. This recipe, must be shared as I have never tasted a Strawberry Rhubarb pie like this. I like the fact that you can cook it on the stove, put it in a baked pie shell, refrigerate and Voile. Time to eat.

    I will definitely be making this often.

  6. Dayymmmm!!! Letting it cool to put in puff pastry tomorrow, the flavor is FABULOUS!!I didn’t have enough rhubarb, so I added a peach, a splash of Grand Marnier, and a sprinkle of cinnamon…fantastic!! Thank you!!! Can’t WAIT to make my arrangement!!

  7. May be a dumb question but how long do you make it for?

    • Not a dumb question at all. It takes me about 20-25 minutes to do the pie filling. If you’re asking about baking it … if it’s a pre done pie shell I cook it until it’s hot 🙂

  8. 5 stars
    Easy and perfect every time. I bring rhubarb from up north to the Deep South and enjoy it year round.  I like the thick filling vs thin sauce that runs all over a plate like a store bought pie.   Thanks for sharing this recipe.  

  9. How do you think this would be canned? It is summer here in Australia, the berries and rhubarb are ripe, and this expat is craving strawberry rhubarb pie. I was thinking of making a lattice pie for a Christmas dinner and then giving away jars of the filling (strawberry rhubarb isn’t a thing here, they all use apple with rhubarb). 

    • Yes, that would work. What a great Christmas present idea! I always love to make extra and then use it for gifts. I do that with my granola recipe. I wish I would have thought of it when rhubarb was still in season here!
