June 9 is National Strawberry Rhubarb Pie Day!
After Ben Franklin introduced rhubarb seeds to the North American east coast in the early 1800s, rhubarb, dubbed “pieplant,” became a popular addition to pies in America. Sweet strawberries mixed with the tart flavor of rhubarb make for one delicious piece of pie – especially when you top it off with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on a hot June day.
Celebrate National Strawberry Rhubarb Pie Day by baking this sweet, tangy treat. Need a recipe?
