Strawberry - Rhubarb Crunch


Today's rhubarb recipe is a variation of my favorite fruit dessert - blueberry crunch. I'll call it:

Strawberry - Rhubarb Crunch

Melt 1/2 cup butter.

In a casserole dish greased with cooking spray, place 2 cups chopped rhubarb and 2 cups strawberries, fresh or frozen.

In a separate bowl mix 3/4 cup rolled oats, 3/4 cup flour, and 1 cup sugar. Add melted butter and stir well. Spoon over fruit, and bake at 350º F. for about 30 minutes until crunchy, and fruit bubbling. Great alone or with whipped cream or ice cream. A perfect dessert for a May evening.

  1. Since I don't have rhubarb, I'll try this recipe with fresh strawberries, which we buy from Costco.

  2. Gigi, I've made it with just strawberries, just raspberries, just blueberries, now this one, and it is always the very best! Easy, easy and delicious.

  4. Hello Nan!

    What a beautiful banner! Thank you so much for the lovely recipe. I would love to give it a try with strawberries which are plentiful this time of year and there are some really beautiful and sweet berries this season. Thank you so much for sharing. Enjoy a lovely weekend.

  8. That looks yummy! I'll be sure to pick up some more rhubarb, since the pie I made didn't last long!

  10. Nan, I have just stumbled on your blog and I am so excited. At this time I am reading Storm in a Village for maybe the 5th time!! I will be running out to our local farm and getting some rhubarb in which to make the rhubarb crunch. Looks awesome.

  15. Ernestine, do you plan to plant some rhubarb? It does grow down there, doesn't it?

  16. Our rhubarb is coming along - and it won't be too long before we have local strawberries. Our farmer friends are growing them under plastic this year so we should get them a little earlier. Then I'll give your recipe a try - it looks good!

  17. Island Sparrow, I love strawberries but have to travel a ways to get them. I'd love to have a close farm that grew them.

  18. Now wouldn't it be nice if strawberries and rhubarb both ripened at the same time in VT? I'm making this today with my own rhubarb and CT strawberries.

  19. Sarah, I can't tell you how it pleases me that you took the time to find the recipe and make it! I wonder if they come at the same time anywhere or if rhubarb is always earlier everywhere???
