A Crumble, A Crisp, A Cobbler
It started with this one berry, ya I know it is impossible to make a crisp with one berry but I picked it anyway and added it to 4 cups of frozen berries I had in the freezer just waiting for the first crumble or cobbler. 
The Rhubarb is that of a bunch from the garden fresh picked
I love this strawberry, it is so hard to haul

Moving onto the crumble
Yum! It looks so good
Removed from the oven, baked just right
There you have it, a strawberry and rhubarb delight.

Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp

Nothing beats this old-fashioned dessert. It takes minutes to prepare and needs only a scoop of ice cream to achieve dessert heaven! If you pick and freeze your own rhubarb and strawberries, frozen works as well as fresh. Combine fruit frozen but remember, allow longer cooking time.
Preparation Time: 15 Minutes
Cooking Time: 40 to 45 Minutes
Servings: 8
  • 4 cups (1 L) Ontario Strawberries, washed, hulled and sliced
  • 4 cups (1 L) Ontario Rhubarb, washed and sliced into 1-inch (2.5 cm) chunks
  • 3/4 cup (175 mL) granulated sugar
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp (2 mL) cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) butter, melted
  • 1 cup (250 mL) each of all-purpose flour and large-flake rolled oats (traditional style)
  • 1 cup (250 mL) lightly packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp (2 mL) cinnamon
In mixing bowl, combine strawberries and rhubarb. Stir in sugar, flour and cinnamon. Spoon into greased 13 x 9-inch (3.5 L) baking dish.
Topping: Combine butter, flour, oats, sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle evenly over top. Bake, uncovered in 375 F (190 C) oven 40 to 45 minutes or until fruit is tender.

Now that the strawberries and rhubarb are slowly coming into season there are plenty of yummy recipes to use up these two fresh garden favourites. If you are not able to use them all up don’t hesitate to freeze them for later use.
