Rhubarb Crunch Recipe

So my first recipe isn’t from our goodies from the CSA.. It is from my own veggie garden.

Here is my Rhubarb plant. This is a cutting form my husband’s grandmothers’ plant.. I forget how far it goes back, I need to find that out.

My mother-in-law gave me this recipe last year and it is simple, made with ingredients that I always have on hand and is perfect for a summer afternoon.

Rhubarb Crunch

1 cup flour
3/4 cup oatmeal
1/2 cup butter; melted
brown sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
4 cups chopped rhubarb
1 cup sugar
1 cup water
2 Tbsp cornstarch

Preheat oven to 350. Spray a 9 in pan with cooking spray.
Mix first 5 ingredients ( flour-cinnamon)  together until crumbly. Pour half of mixture into prepared baking dish & gently press to make a crust.

Cover the crust with the rhubarb.

 In a cold saucepan, mix water, sugar & cornstarch; whisk until cornstarch is dissolved. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat until thickened.

Pour over rhubarb then crumble remaining topping on top.

Bake at 350 for 1 hour.


This would be perfect with a little bit of vanilla ice cream 😉
