This recipe was in a magazine I received from a friend who lives in Iowa. Thanks Doreen. It's a beautiful magazine. I made one 9" pie and had enough left over to make quite a few tarts. They were being eaten before they were barely out of the oven. I didn't think to count them before they were eaten. I used my own recipe for the crust and had store bought tart shells. It has a wonderful flavour. All my berries and the rhubarb were from frozen and thawed before mixing. Apples of course were fresh. The recipe calls for 1 1/2 cups sugar. I only used 1 cup and we even found that a little too sweet for our taste. This is a very simple recipe if you use store bought pie crust.
