HOW TO MAKE FRESH STRAWBERRY RHUBARB CUSTARD PIE
Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 350 degrees F or 175 degrees C.
Step 2: In a 9-inch pie plate, place the rolled-out pie crust. Set it on a baking sheet lined with either parchment paper or silicone baking mat.
Step 3: In a bowl, combine the rhubarb and strawberries.
Step 4: Place the rhubarb-strawberries mixture into the pie crust and distribute evenly.
Step 5: In a medium bowl, whisk the eggs, sugar, milk, flour, and nutmeg.
Step 6: Gradually pour the filling over the rhubarb mixture until the filling just reaches the top edge of the crust.
Step 7: Put the diced butter over the filling and gently tap and shake the baking sheet to get rid of any air bubbles.
Step 8: Place the pie inside the preheated oven and bake for an hour until halfway through and the rhubarb is tender and the custard is set.
Step 9: In a small bowl, mix the strawberry jam and water. Microwave for 15 seconds until warm.
Step 10: Then, glaze the pie with the strawberry jam mixture and let it cool. Place inside the fridge until ready to serve.
