It’s spring I think! It’s lighter out longer, the sun seems to be shining a bit more, and temps are in the 40’s… so I’m thinking it’s spring. When I think of Spring I think of Rhubarb in any dessert. I saw the gorgeous red stalks and I had to make something. So I decided to clean it and slice it, toss sugar, flour, and cinnamon on it, then fill some ramekins. I was out of oatmeal in bulk but I did have packs of instant oatmeal so I used the 3 maple flavored oatmeal packs, ¼ stick of butter, ¾ cup of flour, and 1/3 cup of brown sugar to make my crisp. I mixed those ingredients together and pressed them on top of the rhubarb. I baked them for ½ hour at 350º (remember to preheat your oven). Place them on a lined cookie sheet as the delicious fruit does boil over. I would add rhubarb to bread or just sauté it and use over ice cream or yogurt.
If you see it at the store pick some up and get creative.
