Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp
It’s still early for bountiful farmers’ markets, but it IS strawberry and rhubarb season. And these two fruits, when combined, create one magnificent sweet/tart treat. I snapped up a couple of cartons of berries and a few stalks of rhubarb for my first crisp of the season. Ridiculously yummy, whether for dessert or breakfast. Here’s the super simple recipe.
Preheat oven to 375.
4 cups hulled and quartered strawberries
2 cups rhubarb, diced (roughly two stalks)
1/3 cup sugar
2 – 3 Tbsp. flour
3/4 cup rolled oats
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup flour
6 Tbsp. butter
For topping, combine oats, brown sugar and flour. Cut in butter till mixture resembles course crumbs (I do this with my fingers).
Dump cut fruit in a large bowl and sprinkle with sugar. Stir. Add flour, stir. Place fruit in a pyrex or ceramic pie plate. Sprinkle topping liberally over fruit. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes until topping is browned. Serve with vanilla ice cream.
