There are a few feelings that conjure up the feeling of summer like nothing else: the scent of a freshly cut lawn; the sound of waves crashing on the ocean; the taste of strawberry rhubarb pie. There’s something about those sunsweet strawberries paired with tart, slightly sour rhubarb that bring a smile to our face any time of year, but especially when the farmer’s markets are overloaded with fresh produce. Whether you like baking, drinking, or putting up jam for the long winter, there’s a recipe here for you.
1. Strawberry rhubarb basil balsamic pie
