Strawberry-Rhubarb Crumble

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 35 minutes

Total Time: 50 minutes

Yield: 4-6 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 carton Fresh strawberries, sliced (about 2 cups)
  • 2-3 stalks Fresh rhubarb, cut into 1-inch chunks (about 2 cups)
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tbs corn starch
  • 1/4 cup orange liqueur
  • 1 1/2 cups whole-wheat flour
  • 3/4 cups granola
  • 1/2 cup raw, or turbinado, sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 10 Tbsp unsalted butter, cut into 1/4-inch cubes
  • 1 egg

Instructions

  1. First, preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
  2. Combine the first five ingredients (strawberries, rhubarb, granulated sugar, corn starch, orange liqueur) in a large bowl. Pour into a greased 9-inch pie pan or any combination of equivalently sized baking dishes.
  3. Combine the flour, granola, turbinado sugar, cinnamon, and salt in another large mixing bowl with a pastry cutter (or your hands, or a food processor) until crumbly.
  4. Add the egg, and combine. Spoon onto the fruit mixture. Bake for approximately 35 minutes, or until the fruit mixture is bubbly and the topping is golden brown.

Yum, strawberries. I am so excited for this time of year, when delicious fresh fruits and veggies are abundant! I also can’t wait to check out our local farmer’s market, which starts this weekend (I think).

(The plastic containers make great vessels for starting seeds if you’re into gardening!)

(It was a massacre! No one survived, not even the strawberries!) Sorry. I had to take this photo. I know, I’m warped.

Fresh rhubarb is beautiful! This was the first time I had actually used it. The rhubarb in my memory comes from a very tart strawberry-rhubarb pie that my grandpa bought me as a kid when he actually meant to buy a sweet strawberry pie (or was it cherry? I can’t remember — I just remember that the taste of rhubarb was shocking to a ~6-year-old’s tastebuds).

Okay. I’ll try to focus and actually give you the instructions/photo captions. Begin by preheating the oven to 325 degrees F.

Combine the first five ingredients (strawberries, rhubarb, granulated sugar, corn starch, orange liqueur) in a large bowl.

Pour into a greased 9-inch pie pan or any combination of equivalently-sized baking dishes.

Combine the flour, granola, turbinado sugar, cinnamon, and salt in another large mixing bowl with a pastry cutter (or your hands, or a food processor) until crumbly.

Look Ma, whole-wheat flour! It sorta makes up for the addition of all that butter, right? Sorta….

(This is “crumbly.”)

Add the egg, and combine. Spoon onto the fruit mixture.

Bake for approximately 35 minutes, or until the fruit mixture is bubbly and the topping is golden brown. Like that ^. MMMMmmmm. Dig right into the baking dish if you want to, or serve with some vanilla ice cream.
