Intro: Sweet and Tart Rhubarb Crumble
This crumble is a wonderful way to enjoy summer. Rhubarb seems to taste best when it is fresh.
You can use either orange or lime juice, but lime juice seems to give it a lovely zing.
Serve it plain, or with whipped cream or ice cream.
Step 1: Gather the Ingredients
5 cups rhubarb
3 tbsp orange or lime juice
3/4 cup granulated sugar
2 tsp each cinnamon and nutmeg
2 tbsp butter cut into small pieces
1/4 cup melted butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 cup sifted all-purpose flour
1 cup quick cooking oats
1/4 tsp baking soda
Step 2: Prepare the Filling
Slice the rhubarb into pieces about one inch long.
Arrange sliced rhubarb in a buttered 9" x 12" baking dish.
Dot with the butter.
Sprinkle the juice, the granulated sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg evenly over the rhubarb.
Step 3: Mix the Crumble
Sift together the flour, salt, and baking soda; mix in the brown sugar and the oats.
Combine with the melted butter and rub together to form fine crumbs.
Sprinkle the crumbs evenly over the filling.
Step 4: Bake
Bake at 375� 40 minutes.
