A slice of heaven: It's National Strawberry Rhubarb Pie Day

June 8, 2011 at 7:52 AM ET /
Strawberry Rhubarb Pie is an American classic.

Everyone loves a warm slice of strawberry rhubarb pie -- store-bought or homemade. If you're considering baking a strawberry rhubarb pie for the first time, beginners beware: rhubarb is not all good. In fact, its leaves are poisonous! Rhubarb recipes only require the roots, which give pies that lovable tangy taste. So be sure to stick to the roots, and make like their name and leave those greens alone! Try this recipe for the pie from the Scottos.
