When it came to this strawberry rhubarb crisp, after I swallowed the first bite, I immediately wanted more!
I had never tried rhubarb before I made this strawberry rhubarb crisp. I mean really, it is kind of intimidating. Just look at the way it is shaped. It looks like a large reddish stalk of celery. As you know, I will always try new foods at least once. I’ll put it in my mouth and give it a taste, but it doesn’t mean I have to swallow it.
This recipe for strawberry rhubarb crisp uses the main ingredients from David’s apple crisp recipe, replacing the apples with bite-sized pieces of strawberries and rhubarb. The strawberries and rhubarb are coated in sugar and topped with a brown sugar oat topping with warm tones of cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger.
Oh my goodness, you’ve got to try it!
