Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp

Love rhubarb? Got a lot of it? Try the Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp for one of the best ways to use fresh or frozen rhubarb!

Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp is a Summer Delight

Chopped rhubarb, chunks of ripe strawberries, and that crispy crunchy topping make this Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp a summer fruit dessert that belongs on the table at least once a week all summer long.

Don’t you love rhubarb? It’s basically free food growing in your yard. If you don’t have a patch, I bet someone you know does have a patch. And they’re probably willing to share it with you.

And by that, I mean either give you an armload of rhubarb. OR I bet they’d split up their plant when the time comes and give you a start. Rhubarb is hardy and will grow just about anywhere!

I just love baking with rhubarb, it’s a weekly thing over here. We make these Rhubarb Bars that we ALL love, you have got to check them out. And the Strawberry Rhubarb Bars are fabulous too.

This Old Fashioned Rhubarb Cobbler is a family favorite. We like cobblers for breakfast, how about you?

Now let’s talk about Rhubarb Curd

RHUBARB CURD. Yes, that needs alllllll caps because it is THAT good. Put the curd in little tarts or phyllo cups. Hell eat it with a spoon, you won’t be sorry!

I’ve got a triple batch of Rhubarb Curd in my freezer for wintertime desserts. I’m thinking a fresh pavlova with that curd in it around about Christmas Day. Or maybe a solstice pavlova?

Speaking of Freezing Rhubarb

It’s so easy to do! Just hit up my post about How to Freeze Rhubarb and you’ll fund tons of good information about freezing rhubarb, and so much more.

I make it a goal to have enough rhubarb frozen so that I can bake with it once a week all winter long. I officially challenge you to do the same. Don’t worry once you pick it all, chop it and freeze it, it comes RIGHT BACK. I do like to leave a few stalks to give the plant enough leaves to feed itself.
