Ultimate Comfort Food: Rhubarb Crisp

Nothing brings me back to being a kid like fruit crisp. Any kind of fruit crisp really — but my favorite is rhubarb. Rhubarb + Strawberry coming a close second.

fresh rhubarb (this one from my mom’s garden because she has more rhubarb than ANYBODY else who might have rhubarb for personal consumption!)

I added a few strawberries and some sugar… the sprinkle of sugar on rhubarb always has me thinking “too much? too little? I need it to be tart… I don’t want it too sweet… but i would rather not go cross eyed at the bitterness either…” and it usually turns out just fine – although at times on the sweet side. Adam & the kids prefers it on the sweeter side!

Rhubarb, Strawberries + a bit of sugar

topping: 1 cup of brown sugar, 1 cup rolled oats, 3/4 cup flour, 1/3 cup melter butter. Mix & spread over any fruit combination – bake for 20 to 25 min. at 350oF.

and voila! a wonderful desert!

  1. We have a huge plot of rhubarb, this is our first year in this house and I have never cooked it before… Do you have to wait for the stalks to be very long or can you cut it while it is still short and growing? This looks great! : )
