Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp

Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp

Don’t Forget The Ice Cream!

My rhubarb is up in my garden and I am so excited to make Rhubarb Strawberry Crisp, Rhubarb Strawberry Pie, Rhubarb Strawberry Muffins, and more. Oh my goodness if you have not tried this recipe you are going to love it.
I have a huge plant in my garden enough to make many delicious recipes and put some in the freezer.
Rhubarb is a vegetable that grows straight from the ground. It consists of long pink stalks with large leafy greens at the end. Each stalk is cut at the very end, where the plant meets the ground. Then, the leaves are chopped off to be left with just the pink stalks (the edible portion).
What is the difference between a Crumble, Crisp, and Cobbler?
Crumble – a crumble is a baked fruit dessert with a layer of streusel topping, consisting of flour, sugar and butter.
Crisp – similar to a crumble, but here the streusel topping includes oats, which crisps up as it bakes.
Cobbler – a cobbler is a baked fruit dessert with a thick biscuit topping, dropped onto the fruit in small rounds, making it look like a cobbled road.
Whip up some recipes but include this Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp first. You, your family, friends and even neighbors will all thank you!
