This recipe was developed by Border Grill chef Mary Sue Milliken, who says, “At my restaurant, I use pastry flour for pie crusts, but I commonly find myself without at home, so here I’ve substituted all-purpose flour and cornstarch to achieve the same crispy tenderness. I love freezing fruit at its peak–sliced, sugared, and juicy, with tapioca added–so that a blast of summer is at my fingertips in the dead of winter.” See the recipe for Stone Fruit Pie »

When harvesting garden rhubarb, choose tender, young shoots, discard the rhubarb leaves—which are toxic—and peel any large, tough stems as you would with celery. Commercially grown rhubarb doesn’t need peeling; buy only firm, crisp stalks, and store them in the refrigerator. See the recipe for Shaker Rhubarb Pie »
