    Prep:30min  ›  Cook:40min  ›  Ready in:1hr10min 

    1. Preheat oven to 200 C / Gas 6. Line a 26cm pie tin with one sheet of pastry. Refrigerate the other sheet of pastry until needed.
    2. Stir the 300g of sugar, salt, orange zest, tapioca and nutmeg together in a bowl until well blended. Gently stir in the rhubarb, strawberries and orange juice, taking care not to crush the strawberries; pour into the pastry lined tin. Dot the filling with butter pieces. Top with the second sheet of pastry.
    3. Crimp the edges of the top and bottom pastry together to seal. Brush the pie with milk and sprinkle with 1 tablespoon of sugar. Cut several vent holes in the top of the pie.
    4. Bake in the preheated oven until the filling is thickened and bubbling and the pastry has browned, 40 to 50 minutes. Check after 30 minutes of baking time; if the edges of the pastry are browning too quickly, cover them with strips of foil. Cool the pie before serving.


    Tapioca flour can be purchased in Oriental speciality shops or online.

    This pie is FANTASTIC! The orange is a wonderful addition...just adds a hint of additional flavor. I followed the recipe except I used a 350 degree oven and cooked the pie for 70 minutes. The crust edges never burned. I will definitely make this again...I think next time for something different I will use my kutchen topping instead of a double crust...which is 1/4 cup melted butter...1 cup sugar and 1/2 cup flour mixed together and sprinkled on top. Definitely FIVE STARS!  -  14 May 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Sounded so good; I had to try this pie. I used frozen strawberries instead, and made 1 pie. My wife was amazed that I could do this. Made me happy and we loved it.  -  29 Apr 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
