Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp


Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp
Fresh, homegrown (from mom’s garden) rhubarb!


There’s just something about strawberries and rhubarb together…
Simple, yummy and summery!


This recipe comes from my mom… she makes a mean rhubarb crisp!
I like to shake it up a bit, and make it a strawberry/rhubarb combo!
We just love these two fruits together.


Easy to make.  Home made.  Real food.


Here’s How-To:

Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp


  • 3 cups rhubarb (cut into small pieces)
  • 2 cups strawberries (fresh, cut up into small pieces)
  • 1/41 cup sugar (you decide how sweet you want it…I use 2/3 cup sugar…)
  • 1/4 cup water or fruit juice (I use water)
  • 2/3 cup flour (I use 1/3 white flour (1/3 whole wheat flour))
  • 2/3 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/3 cup melted butter or margarine


  1. In an oven proof dish, combine your strawberries, rhubarb, sugar, and water/or juice.
  2. In a separate bowl, combine flour, oats, salt, sugar and butter.
  3. Then spread oat mix on top of your fruit.
  4. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 40 minutes.
  5. Let rest. I think it’s best served after it has sat for about 30 minutes to an hour.


Serve with cream, whipping cream, or ice cream!  Delicious!

    I love the color. Reminds me of afternoons at my grandmother’s house. She loved the strawberry-rubarb combination.
