To tell you the truth, I'm not sure how well my crumble keeps...we usually eat it all in a day! You can skip the apples and strawberries in the recipe—like I do sometimes—But they do make this quick-and-easy dessert extra good.
Although our address in Alberta, our farm's actually just inside the Saskatchewan border. We grow grain and raise cattle. Our children are 10 and 7.
One day, I wanted to use up a leftover can of cherry pie filling that I had in the refrigerator. I added some diced rhubarb, then used a cobbler topping I liked. It turned into a favorite—fast!
After many years of farming, my husband and I are now enjoying a new life in our new house, built on a lake.
"Can I have the recipe?" is the question I'm always asked whenever I serve this delicious dessert. Rhubarb is generally ready first thing in spring, and these bars are a great way to welcome the season.
This recipe—along with a bundle of rhubarb—was given to me by my husband's grandmother when we were first married. I had never cared for rhubarb, but after trying this dessert, I changed my mind. Now my children dig in, too!
I came up with this recipe after hearing a friend fondly recall his grandmother's rhubarb dumplings. My son especially likes rhubarb, and this old-fashioned dessert lets those special stalks star.
