Blueberry Rhubarb Crisp

July 3, 2013

I LOVE RHUBARB. One of my earliest memories is of sitting on my grandmother’s kitchen counter, eating fresh rhubarb, in the summer. It is actually a vegetable, but in the U.S. most people use it like a fruit. I like how tart it is, since it pairs well with berries for compotes and pies. This crisp is very easy to pull together and is de-lic-ious!

You will need:

  • 1/3 c + 1/2 c sugar, divided

  • 3 c cut fresh or frozen rhubarb, in 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1/3 c walnuts

Then you will…

  2. In a medium bowl, mix together 1/3 c of the sugar with 2 T of the flour.
  3. Stir in the blueberries and rhubarb. Mix to coat.
  4. Spread into the prepared baking dish.
  5. In a food processor, combine the walnuts with the remaining sugar, flour, brown sugar and cinnamon.
