Notes

It is preferable to use fresh rhubarb and strawberries. If you only have the frozen ones, no need to thaw as long as you drain the excess water. Do not cut it before it is entirely cool to avoid a runny and watery pie since the pie filling requires plenty of time to cool down so it can thicken and set up appropriately. Also, the pie filling can be blended then frozen for as long as three months so, before using it, it is best to thaw overnight in the refrigerator.
