Remember Your Rhubarb

For some reason I always forget that I have purchased rhubarb and I let it go bad in the fridge.

I did remember in time this week, though, and I made a strawberry-rhubarb crisp and put it in the oven. Then I headed to gymnastics.


At the twin bridges I realized that I had forgotten to take it out of the oven. Fortunately Clara was home by the phone, and all was not lost.


If you want to try your own, here is a similar recipe. You can substitute two cups of strawberries (from the freezer. Let's use up the last of the 2009 berries now!) for half the rhubarb.

But set your timer.

I always forget I have a plant of it growing near the back fence. That bush sprouts and dies off before I remember, almost every year.

Silly me!

Dear Anna,

Thank you for this recipe...I am forever looking for new ideas for rhubarb. My "men" love apple crisp, so I'm sure that they will enjoy this as well.

On another note, I stumbled across your blog while visiting another awhile ago. I so enjoy reading it. Thank you for sharing your precious blessings with us!
God bless,
Laura

Yum yum.

To prevent that rhubarb from going bad, or when you are blessed with an influx of it from both sets of grandparents and aunts and uncles (speaking from experience here...), my grandma taught me to chop it up (just as you have in the crisp), put 1c portions in baggies and freeze. now I have my brown sugar-rhubarb muffins all year round! {And I don't even have to defrost it--I just toss the frozen rhubarb in my muffin batter and bake. it's perfect.}

Anna, This look fabulous! Thanks for the recipe.

Wanted to tell you about a site that you might not know about but is well worth a little look when you get a chance. www.sew4home.com

My mom makes a mean rhubarb crisp! I wonder if she's ever added strawberries...I'll have to ask her. Those pictures are making me hungry. :-)

I just found your blog and I love it! :) Very encouraging and inspiring!

I wanted to share with you that we freeze our rhubarb. It's a trick I recently learned...thankfully! Ours used to go bad before I could use it up, too! Now we just wash, dry, and cut it to the size we need for our crisp recipe. Then we measure 1 or 2 cups out and freeze it in a baggie marked with the amount inside.

Anyway, love your blog and look forward to reading more!
Blessings to you,
Leah
