Rhubarb Crisp


Rhubarb is one of my favorite vegetables to use in desserts. Yes it is a vegetable and not a fruit like you would think. This Rhubarb Crisp recipe has that sweet and tart flavor I just love. I have grown my own rhubarb for over 25 years now. It is just coming into season. I wash it, cut it and put it into 2 cup freezer bags then I freeze whatever I don’t use right away. That way I can make my favorite rhubarb recipes any time of the year.

  1. Diane, this sounds SO good. Strawberry rhubarb pie is very popular in parts of Pennsylvania. I crave it every year. I don’t think people realize how good rhubarb is.

  2. We are a long time from rhubarb season here. I have a recipe for a rhubarb coffee cake which I make every year which I can’t wait to make.

      • It’s a lovely recipe that my dietician/neighbour tried and was impressed with so she gave it to me. It’s made with sour cream so very moist and keeps for a week. A nice crunchy topping. Could also be done with blueberries. I’m going to do a post on rhubarb in June, as we used to have a big patch on the farm, and will post it then. I’m sure it will be at least June before we see any rhubarb here!

  3. Yummy! We used to eat a lot of rhubarb when I was a kid because we had a HUGe patch. I have a few plants now that dad and I picked up from a friend a few years ago. It has never taken off for some reason and I have not harvsted any. A few days ago I was thinking I should cut a few stalks since my son and his friend are here. I am not sure if they have eaten it before so it would be a good time. Thanks for the receip​e!

  4. I didn’t know you could freeze rhubarb. Do you have to blanch it first? Ours is newly planted, so I think we’ll be a year or two off freezing any, but nice to know we can.

    • No I don’t blanch it. I wash it, let it dry, cut it into about 1/2″ pieces and put 2 cups of it in a baggie. Then I put the full baggies into a freezer bag and freeze. That’s it Chris!
