Strawberries... and Rhubarb! Oh, My!
We picked about 16 pounds of berries in total. That translated into 9 trays of berries in the dehydrator, a batch of Strawberry Rhubarb Jam, some fruit roll-ups, a couple trays in the freezer, and tonight's dessert: Strawberry Rhubarb Crunch. It came from a Taste of Home issue back in '97.
For the 'crust' and the topping, mix together
1 c flour
1 c brown sugar
3/4 c oats
1 tsp cinnamon
and cut in 1/2 c butter. Press half into a greased 9" pan.
Dice 4 cups of rhubarb and 2 cups of strawberries. And throw in the mandarin oranges you might have in the fridge. Ignore my inaccurate measuring. It's what I do.
Spoon over crust.
1 c sugar
2 Tbl cornstarch
1 c water
1 tsp vanilla
and bring to a boil over medium heat. Stir for two minutes.
