PINK SATURDAY POSTING TIME! LOVELY RHUBARB - STRAWBERRY CRISP TO CELEBRATE !






We have had snow, rain and cold this week - but amazingly the flowers continue to rise out of the ground...this is a GOOD THING! I am amazed that they haven't died in such cold weather!
I WANT THEM TO BE GORGEOUS THIS YEAR for my tea parties!




The spring season always welcomes the arrival of rhubarb....so with that I have made some lovely Rhubarb - Strawberry Crisp for a Pink Saturday Celebration!  I got this recipe from Cottage Living Magazine Issue 8/2007 by Carol....






Here is what you will need: 1 pound strawberries sliced, 5 stalks rhubarb, cut into 1" pieces (about 4 cups), 1 cup granulated sugar,
2 Tb cornstarch, 2 tsp orange zest from 1 small orange, 1/3 cup orange juice, 2 cups all-purpose flour, 1 cup of granola, 3/4 cup brown sugar, 1 Tb cinnamon, 3/4 cup of unsalted butter cut into small pieces, 1 large egg





Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Combine the first 6 ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Pour into a lightly greased 9 x 13 baking dish.
Combine flour and next 5 ingredients with hands until crumbly.  Add egg and combine...place on top of fruit mixture.  Bake for 45 minutes or until bubbly!

I love a crisp and strawberry and rhubarb I always cook together too. Now I'm thinking I better go and make one myself because yours looks so good.

What a pretty teapot!!! Everytime I see or hear of a rhubarb dessert, it brings back memories of my mother. She was a great cook and a very frugal homemaker. Thanks for bringing back memories.

What a beautiful teapot and embroidered linens. The recipe sounds yummy. I have tried to buy rhubarb at my local grocery store and they do not carry it - not even frozen. :-(
