I used frozen rhubarb and frozen strawberries (that I had picked and frozen without sugar). The bars were great, easy to make and very tasty. I'm getting ready to make a couple more batches for a picnic this weekend.

Hi Cindy, you don't need any water in this recipe. The fruits make their own juices when they are cooked down. Happy baking!
