Rhubarb & Strawberries: A Lesson to be Learned


One of the first signs of spring is the arrival of rhubarb and strawberries at the local grocer. While the weather may still be chilly, the days do seem to be getting warmer and longer. Everyday the sun is getting higher in the sky, and I can’t help but notice that spirits seem to be getting higher too.

Tough and tart Rhubarb is a lot like these bitter, chilly spring mornings. However, when combined with shiny strawberries & sweet sugar the medley uncannily becomes a lot like these early spring days that start out nippy, but by mid-day becomes a promise of the sweet warm days to come.

The good with the bad. The bitter with the sweet. Funny how they complement each other best sometimes. Living with celiac or food allergies we have all recognized and experienced the combo of the two.

The weakest morning sun and the chilly early air always become brighter and warmer… especially when sprinkled with extra sunbeams and the faith of better days to come.

    I have not had a strawberry-rhubarb pie since I was a child but I do remember enjoying the combination. Maybe I will go through my recipes and see if I can get tempted to make a gluten free version.
