Rhubarb is at its best and most tender early in the spring, and that's the time to make delicate rhubarb tarts and cakes. By late summer the rhubarb crop is getting ready to give up the ghost, and what's left is usually fat, somewhat woody, and liable to be tough, unless it's treated right. Rhubarb crumble is the solution for a baker faced with one last basket of rhubarb and no room in the freezer.
