Cheery Cherry Crisp Recipe

"I love the aroma and flavor of basil! So when I found a recipe that called for basil in a strawberry-rhubarb crisp, I couldn't wait to try it," writes Beth Rice of Springfield, Oregon. "I reduced the fat in the recipe and changed the strawberries to cherries since I had a tree loaded with them. The tart fruit flavor goes perfectly with the tangy basil."

Directions

  1. Drain cherries, reserving juice. Add enough water to measure 1/2 cup. Set cherries aside. In a microwave-safe 8-in. square baking dish, combine 1/2 cup sugar, cornstarch and reserved juice until smooth. Microwave, uncovered, on high for 3-4 minutes or until thickened, stirring occasionally. Gently stir in the rhubarb, basil, reserved cherries and remaining sugar.

Editor's Note: If using frozen rhubarb, measure rhubarb while still frozen, then thaw completely. Drain in a colander, but do not press liquid out.
