I married a man that enjoys rhubarb desserts now and then. I don’t remember having rhubarb when I was a kid. My grandma did make Rhubarb Jello like my mother-in-law makes. I don’t remember her fixing it when I was young, but I probably just heard “rhubarb” and didn’t even try it. I was picky. There are so many foods that I like now that I wouldn’t have even tried as a kid. I still don’t love any and all foods and I tend to liked baked things over veggies. 🙂 I have a couple of friends who honestly like almost any kind of food. That would be nice in some ways and I will say it is more fun to cook for someone with this sort of palate. Namely, because you feel like a good cook no matter what!
We had this crisp at my sister-in-law’s and she shared the recipe with me. She has a pretty good stand of rhubarb. I’ve tried a couple of times and have yet to get a crop of rhubarb established. Forgetfulness and neglect and a black thumb, might or might not play into this.
Do you fix rhubarb?
Here’s the recipe for a yummy crisp. It’s especially delicious with creamy, cold homemade ice cream!
And over here is a recipe for Rhubarb Surprise Pie.
