Strawberry and Rhubarb Crumble

"The crumble is the British version of the American crisp. This one features the classic combination of tart rhubarb and sweet strawberries, topped with a crunchy oat-and-hazelnut streusel. A scoop of ice cream is the perfect finishing touch. Originally by Tamasin Day-Lewis and taken from Bon Appetit - May 2010 for ZWT."

    As a kid I used to love eating stalks of rhubarb raw, but never seemed to care for the strawberry/rhubarb pies that came my way! This dessert, however, is absolutely delicious! We really enjoyed the berry & 'barb combo, & I'll be making this again, for sure! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]

    Hi, This was nice, I have never tried strawberries with rhubarb before but I have seen recipes for pies, but I liked the crumble idea better than pie. I wasn't disappointed, I had mine with a bit of cream. Adding the oats and nuts was a great idea, it makes it very crunchy and the juice from the berries makes it gooey underneath, lovely, just lovely. Thank you for posting. Made for ZWT#6 2010.


Someone special recently gifted me with membership ~ I don't know who, but know they are special :D! Thank you! It is much appreciated.... My parents owned a grocery store when I was growing up, so there's my love of FOOD! My friends all love to drink, so there's my profession! I stopped bartending 5 years ago, when my son was born, but still 'do' private parties. DH and I did a 'Supper Club' for a while, but life kept getting in the way! I am a SAHM, to a rambunctious 5 y.o....I LOVE cooking and collect cookbooks and anything kitchen related! I'm kinda picky, but will just drop an ingredient or make a sub, so I can still try a recipe. I'm looking forward to many years of enjoyment here, and hope to participate in some events soon! Thanks to everyone for posting such great recipes, and if you review mine, just know that I appreciate the time and effort involved in the reviewing process! <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <a href=""><img src=""></a> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src=""> <img src=""> Partnered with chef#724631 <img src="" border="0" alt="Susie's Banner for Newest Zaar Tag"> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> Co-hosted: <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="New Kids Participation Banner"> <img src=""> <img src =""> <a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="BBBZWT%"></a> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" > <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src= "">
