Strawberry Rhubarb Custard Pie

This was my Grandmothers recipe, we all love it! You can adjust the sweetness by the amount of strawberries you add. You will need 3 cups of fruit in total, but if you want a more tart pie, use more rhubarb than strawberries. I have posted this with exactly 1/2 and 1/2.

  1. Place rhubarb in a bowl and cover with boiling water for about 5 minutes.

I also skipped out on the crust and added 1/4 cup oatmeal to the topping. My boyfriend said it is one the best desserts I've ever made! He made me promise to make more immediately :)
I used palm sugar instead of sugar, as I have blood sugar sensitivities. Followed the recipe exactly outside of that.

This was very tasty, though we did find it somewhat overly sweet. Next time I will cut back on the sugar. I made it more as a crisp/custard dessert rather than pie. I skipped the bottom pie crust and added 1/4 cup of oatmeal to the topping. I also used frozen strawberries, so my filling was a bit runny. Use a bit more flour or some cornstarch if using frozen berries.
