Spring is a great season for many reasons, but as it relates to food, it brings about one of my favorite sweet, yet tangy food items: rhubarb. There are so many ways to prepare rhubarb – rhubarb ice cream, rhubarb pie, rhubarb shortbread bars and more – however, I wanted to make a quick dessert this past weekend. I decided upon making an Old-Fashioned Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp. Crisps in general are exceptionally simple, yet yield such fantastic flavors. This recipe was no exception, and I believe the mix of sweet flavors with the strawberries mixed perfectly with the tangy flavors of the rhubarb to create a nice balance that wasn’t too overpowering.
Step 1: Cut Rhubarb and Strawberries
Step 2: Combine Rhubarb and
Strawberries with Sugar, Lemon
Juice and Other Ingredients
Step 3: Place Rhubarb and Strawberry
Mixture into Individual Rammekins
Step 4: Combine Butter with Brown
Sugar, Oats and Other Spices; Place
on Top of Rhubarb-Strawberry Mixture
Step 5: Bake in the Oven and Eat!
In my opinion, rammekins are just not used enough. When I saw this recipe, I instantly thought of using rammekins in order to create smaller portion sizes for the Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp. This worked great because each person was able to get just enough rhubarb and strawberry flavor, yet didn’t feel too full afterwards.
