Pat’s Rhubarb and Peach Pie

Rhubarb season is in full swing, so today I’m going to make a pie. It won’t make a dent in my current harvest!Picture of pile of rhubarb

Also, I’ve been planning to add a category to the blog for friends’ recipes, and I happen to have one for rhubarb pie from Pat L, so it’s the perfect opportunity.

Pat says:

“I don’t usually use canned fruit, but canned peaches keep their shape well in this pie.”


3 c. sliced rhubarb

1 can (15 oz.) sliced peaches, in natural juice

3/4 c. sugar

3 tbsp. tapioca

grated orange rind, to taste


– Drain peaches and reserve 1/4 c. of juice.

– Mix juice with other ingredients and let sit while you make the pie crust.

– Dot top with butter before putting on top crust.

– Bake at 400 degrees (you can lower temperature if crust gets too brown) about 50 mins.

Pat doesn’t say, but this makes a standard 8 or 9 inch pie, which makes about 8 servings.

Give it a try, and let me know how you get on. 🙂

I'm an American living in the UK, combining rural Mid-west ideas about food with a suburban coastal British reality. It's fun!

    One day my rhubarb will be big enough to harvest and make pie. I love rhubarb and apple pie. 🙂

    This sounds like a nice variation from the strawberry-rhubarb recipe.
