Winning Rhubarb-Strawberry Pie
“While being raised on a farm I often ate rhubarb, so it’s natural for me to use it in a pie. I prefer to use lard for the flaky pie crust and thin, red rhubarb stalks for the filling. These two little secrets helped this recipe win top honours at the 2013 Iowa State Fair.” —Marianne Carlson, Jefferson, Iowa
