Carol Gallagher, a missionary in Paupa, New Guinea asked our Test Kitchen to lighten up this favorite. Cream was replaced with 2% milk, orange marmalade was substituted for three of the original’s egg yolks, and the sugar was reduced. The resulting makeover recipe has half the total fat and 60% less saturated fat.--Taste of Home's Test Kitchen
Now all you rhubarb fans out there can minimize that mouth-puckering flavor without having to ladle on the sugar. This light recipe lets you enjoy one of springtime's quintessential treats and feel good about each bite you take. —Taste of Home Test Kitchen
A dollop of whipped topping adds a nice finishing touch to this satisfying crumble. Sometimes I drizzle a little flavored coffee creamer on top instead of the whipped topping. —Nancy Sousley, Lafayette, Indiana
"RHUBARB was one of the first crops Grandma gathered from her garden in spring. She told us kids her rhubarb sauce was a good tonic for whatever ailed us, but we much preferred the delicious dessert she served after Easter dinner. This Rhubarb Crunch was so delicious with fresh cream skimmed from the top of some milk."
Meet the Cook: When my husband and I moved to our house in town, the rhubarb patch had to come along! This is a hit whether I serve it warm with ice cream or cold.
