Today's Reason to Celebrate

June 9, 2011 was

National Strawberry Rhubarb Pie Day

Today is National Strawberry Rhubarb Pie Day. Wow, that’s definitely a mouthful—of deliciousness, that is!

This sweet and tangy treat was first made popular during the early 1800's, about 30 years after Benjamin Franklin introduced rhubarb, nicknamed "pieplant," to the East Coast. With strawberry season starting, what better way to celebrate this old favorite than to bake one yourself. Yum!

Did you know that rhubarb is actually a vegetable? This makes strawberry rhubarb pie one of the rare (tasty) pies that combines fruits and vegetables. Any dessert that gets us to eat our veggies definitely deserves its own day. So whether you bake or buy, go grab yourself a strawberry rhubarb pie!
