Wildflower Honey Strawberry Rhubarb Pie

Strawberry Rhubarb Pie is a sweet and tangy seasonal favorite.   Rhubarb is loved by gardeners, especially since it is one of the first vegetables to ripen every spring.  It pairs perfectly with sweet fruits like strawberries and Wildflower Honey to make a delicious perennial pie.  Add a scoop of vanilla ice cream for a taste of spring that everyone will love.
