    1. Preheat oven to 200 C / Gas mark 6. Roll out shortcrust pastry and line a 23cm (9 in) pie dish.
    2. In a large bowl, mix together sugar, flour and nutmeg. Stir in eggs. Fold in rhubarb making sure to coat well, then do the same with the strawberries. Pour mixture into prepared pie dish.
    3. Roll out a second layer of pastry and cover the top of the pie. Pinch pastry together around the edge of the pie dish, and cut off any excess pastry. Cut slits into the top of the pie to vent steam. Brush egg white on top layer of pastry.
