Here are a few tips on making EASY STRAWBERRY RHUBARB CRISP:
Because this recipe puts fresh strawberries and rhubarb to good use, folks up in cottage country often say it tastes like summer. For best results, try to find locally grown strawberries, or even better, pick your own if you can. The deep, ruby-red colour and sweet, almost honey-like flavour are most desirable.
Using fresh rhubarb for this recipe is another wise move. Not only is it tart and tangy but it also has a striking reddish colour that adds to the appetizing look of the crisp. Head HERE to learn more about this delicious seasonal vegetable. Call ahead to your local market or farmstead to make sure they have rhubarb, then just rinse, discard the leaves and get baking.
GET YOUR FILL
There’s nothing complicated in the ingredients, so you should be able to find everything you need at your local supermarket. If you’re up in cottage country, we bet the marina or local tuck shop carries this stuff too! Best to buy extra ingredients so you can make the recipe to order. I am not joking, it’s very popular.
As mentioned, prepare for a happy moment when making this recipe. Stirring up the strawberries and rhubarb brings together a very appealing colour combination. The graduations of reds, crimsons, sage and vibrant green is really something. Take a pic and post it on a favourite social platform using #weekendatthecottage so we can marvel at it too!
The topping has all the hallmarks of a traditional crisp: rolled oats, butter and dark brown sugar. It’s a great combo, but the inclusion of cinnamon and an oat flour in this recipe both boost the flavour and help it further get a good, golden crisp when baked.
DISHES AND BUBBLES
I laughed out loud when I brought the STRAWBERRY RHUBARB CRISP out of the oven; it was slightly inflated and the filling was so hot, bubbles popped as it cooled. One thing to remember, you’ve got to make this dessert in an oven-safe casserole dish. I’ve listed a few options for my favourite dishes in the Amazon links section below.
This crisp is way less fussy than pie, but should still get a little “à la mode” when you serve it. We like this HOMEMADE VANILLA ICE CREAM, but if store-bought is the only option, we’ll never tell – go for it! Of course, you can also serve this dessert all fancy in footed glass stemware with a dollop of whipped cream. Again, up to you.
