       Yield: 6 servings
     3/4 c  Sugar
     1/3 c  Sifted all-purpose flour
       1 ts Ground cinnamon
     1/2 ts Ground cloves
       1 lb Fresh rhubarb
       1 pt Strawberries
       2 tb Butter or margarine
            FLAKY PASTRY II (or 1/2
            -package pie crust mix)
            Milk or cream
            FLAKY PASTRY II
   1 1/2 c  Sifted all-purpose flour
       1 ts Salt
     1/2 c  Vegetable shortening
       4 tb (about) cold water
   Sift flour and salt into a medium bowl; cut in shortening with a fork
   or pastry blender until mixture is crumbly.  Sprinkle cold water over
   mixture, 1 tablespoon at a time; mix lightly with a fork just until
   pastry holds together and leaves sides of bowl clean.  Make a ball;
   flatten it.  Wrap dough in plastic and store in refrigerator until
   ready for use.
   Mix sugar, flour, cinnamon, and cloves in a bowl. Wash rhubarb; trim
   ends; cut into 1-inch pieces (You should have 6 cups). Wash
   strawberries; hull and halve (you should have 4 cups). Place both in
   a large bowl. Sprinkle with sugar mixture; toss lightly to mix. Let
   stand 15 minutes. Toss again. Spoon rhubarb-strawberry filling into
   an 8 x 8 x 2-inch baking dish; dot with butter or margarine. Prepare
   pastry. Roll out to a 10-inch square on a lightly floured surface.
   Cut in 1/2-inch strips with a pastry wheel or knife. Weave strips
   into a lattice. Cover filling. Turn ends under just enough so that
   strips touch sides of baking dish. Brush lattice top with milk or
   cream; sprinkle with sugar. Bake in hot oven (425 F) for 40 minutes,
   or until pastry is golden and juices bubble up. Cool. Serve warm with
   vanilla ice cream, if you wish.
