…from the Perspectives’ Kitchen
How you doin’? Okay, picture this… you just heard your family is coming over for a surprise birthday dinner for your better half. You’ve been nominated to make a super summertime dessert. You’ve got about an hour to pull it all together. What’s a person to do?
Try my perfect recipe, Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp which really is perfect for those who wonder what to do with that big rhubarb plant in the garden (or those strange stalks you see in the supermarket). This recipe
is your answer and it will have everyone asking for the recipe… and seconds!
Although rhubarb is a vegetable, it is often put to the same culinary uses as fruits. The stalks can be used raw, when they have a crisp texture (like celery, although it is in a different family), but are most commonly cooked with sugar and used in pies, crumbles, crisps and other desserts. They have a strong, tart flavor.
Prep time: 15 minutes
Bake time: 45 minutes
Yield: 8-12 servings
For the fruit layer
3 cups sliced fresh sweet strawberries
3 cups diced rhubarb
1 cup granulated sugar
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
For the crisp, crunchy topping
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup rolled oats
1 cup unsalted butter
1 pint vanilla ice cream (I prefer Ben & Jerry’s)
ChefSecret: The crisp topping from this recipe can be used for any fruit crisp of your choosing. Just following the same directions. It is easier than pie.
Quip of the Day: Q. How did the unripe strawberry feel about the ripe strawberry?
A: It was green with envy.
