I'm trying to make a pumpkin pie and I wanna use a jar of strawberry rhubarb jam in it. Suggestions?

So yeah, my roommate is a little wacky and wants a strawberry rhubarb pumpkin pie for his birthday. What do you think is they best way to make this combo? Thanks!

That is an odd combination. But it will look pretty!. I'd make the pie, let it cool, and then melt the jam and use it as a glaze over the top. (It will look pretty and you can scrape the jam off if it doesn't taste good.)

I would spread jam on the crust before I put the pumpkin in, so it's a hidden layer - of course the disadvantage as opposed to DrB's way is, you're stuck with it whether you like it or not ...

I would go for a pumpkin cheesecake pie (the cream will buffer and help balance the pumpkin, strawberry & rhubarb flavors). You could either bake the jam into the pie, or make it a sauce & sub for the caramel sauce in this recipe. http://www.onceuponachef...
