Yes, I've had that combo too, but to my mind, unless you're making strawberry jam, strawberries were never meant to be cooked. They simply turn to mush.

Rhubarb can be mixed with many other fruits that can stand up to a tart flavor. I even like it by itself. Now, if you want something really tart, try gooseberries!

"Sweet" isn't the only flavor that makes a good dessert!

I had a slice of Gooseberry pie at Marie Callendar's years ago, loved it!
I'm not a fan of blackberries, to me, they taste like whiskey. yuck.
