I know I haven’t written a report card in forever, and I have a million things I should be writing about, but I’ve been spending my free time with my visiting in-laws and I have two rhubarb recipes that are dying to be shared before rhubarb season ends.  This crisp just rocks and is a fun alternative to rhubarb pie; if you’re feeling daring, it also makes for a delicious, if slightly decadent, breakfast with yogurt added to the bowl.  Mmmmmm…


  • 3 cups fresh sliced rhubarb
  • 2 cups fresh sliced strawberries
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup + 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 cup butter


Preheat oven to 375F.  Place fruit in a 2-quart baking dish and stir in the granulated sugar and 3 tablespoons of the flour.

For topping, in a medium bowl combine the oats, brown sugar, remaining flour, and nutmeg.  Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.  Sprinkle topping over fruit.

Bake30-35 minutes or until fruit is tender and topping is golden.  Serve warm with plain yogurt at breakfast, or vanilla ice cream for desert.
