OH BOY!  I must share this recipe with you!  It's actually a recipe made by My Man (he's quite the chef, you know).  We call it STRAWBERRY RHUBARB CRUMBLE.  I have never had rhubarb before this, but My Man has told me many times how tasty it is.  So we had some in our garden this year and when I came home from 2 long days of Cub Scout Day Camp, he had this delicious stuff baking in the oven.

If you've never had Rhubarb before, you should try it.  Rhubarb is kinda tart and tangy and then when you add the sweetness of the strawberries and the crunchy cookie-dough-like crumble on top, it's an amazing experience for your mouth!

The Strawberry Rhubarb mixture part is actually similar to a recipe at Food Network but he changed it a little. He added more sugar and took out the orange zest.

Here's the basic info:

4 cups of fresh rhubarb, diced
4 cups fresh strawberries, hulled and halved
1 1/2 cups of white sugar
1 TB cornstarch
1/2 cup orange juice (he used juice from concentrate)

Toss the fruit in the sugar.  Add the cornstarch to the orange juice and dissolve.  Then add it to the fruit/sugar mixture. Pour into a 9x13 greased baking dish.

Then the CRUMBLE is My Man's.  Here's what he did:

1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 cup flour
1 cup of oats
2 tsp vanilla
1/4 to 1/2 cup butter, softened (however much you need to make it crumbly)

Mix all the above ingredients and cut in the butter until crumbly.  It's kinda like a crumbly cookie dough. Sprinkle over the fruit mixture.  The thicker the crumble, the better.  Bake at 350 for about 45 mins to 1 hour.   It would be delish with vanilla ice cream!

  1. Oh YUMMY!! That looks GOOD!!!

    Thanks for sharing this at The DIY Dreamer... From Dream To Reality last week! Can't wait to see what you share tomorrow evening!

  2. I used to eat Rhubarb a lot as a kid and my mum was always making crumbles. I love them....they are a winter super food...he he.

    This looks like a delicious recipe. The crumble topping I make doesn't have oats in it, so I will have to try this one for something different :-)

    Thanks for linking up to Marvelous Monday at Smart Party Planning. Hope to see you again next week :-)
