From Garden to Dessert Plate

This was a big hit. They loved it. We've had this rhubarb plant for quite some time in our garden but for some reason I just never paid much attention. Until today that is and the girls and I whipped up this extremely easy rhubarb crunch for dessert.

3 Cups Dried Rhubarb
1 cup white sugar
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 cup packed light brown sugar
1 cup quick cooking oats
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup butter
  • DIRECTIONSPreheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9x13 inch baking dish.
  1. In a large mixing bowl combine rhubarb, white sugar, and 3 tablespoons flour. Stir well and spread evenly into baking dish. Set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl combine brown sugar, oats, and 1 1/2 cups flour. Stir well then cut in butter or margarine until mixture is crumbly. Sprinkle mixture over rhubarb layer.
  3. Bake in preheated oven for 40 minutes. Serve hot or cold.

Yum rhubarb...we use to grow it up in Illinois with my family. I don't Garden much. I don't know if you can grow rhubarb in Florida? Hey what part of America do you live in? Just wondering.
