Succulent berries mixed with tart rhubarb create a stunning filling for this old-fashioned comfort food. In the summer, strawberries and raspberries add sweetness and offset the beautiful red and pink tones of the rhubarb, but subbing in other berries as they are available creates whole worlds of great tastes and colors. Blueberries give a fantastic purple filling, for example. Making a simple shortcrust pastry from scratch is easier than you might think, too, and gives a lovely homemade feel to the dish. If your berries are damper than normal, feel free to thicken the dish with a little extra cornstarch, or use arrowroot for a glossy finish.
