This fun, colorful recipe from Elm Grove, Wisconsin's Beverly Rice is so easy because you don't need to peel the apples. Berries and rhubarb give the flavor a boost."It's great hot or cold, over ice cream or just as is," says Beverly, winner in Milwaukee.

"Excellant way to use small amounts of berries. Not to sweet. Hubby loved it."

"This was fantastic, especially for my two fruit loving toddlers. Easy to prepare and the leftovers froze well. I made it in the spring, so I used fresh rhubarb and strawberries, but replaced the frozen cranberries with frozen tart cherries. Cool and delicious."
