Blueberry Rhubarb Pie

Everybody has had Pie at one time or another, nearly everybody has had blueberries and a lot of people have had Rhubarb.

Rhubarb has a taste similar to strawberries when it is sweetened, a tad tarter, but similar. Blueberries, like all berries are sweet, mildly sweet with a taste all their own.

Blueberries and Rhubarb in combination with one another make a nice dish, when baked together in a pie they taste nothing like four and twenty blackbirds but they are delicious, the blueberries and rhubarb that is - not the blackbirds.
