Although butter and sugar were scarce during World War II, my mom would save her rations to make this tasty treat using wild blueberries and homegrown rhubarb.

"I used oats instead of almonds as well, and threw some fresh strawberries into the mix too. Added a little extra sugar due to the additional fruit. Very good........serve with ice cream!"

"I used more fruit than the recipe called for (kept sugar content the same), and used only about 2/3 of the crumb topping. Also, I used oats instead of the almonds. Tasted great!"

"This was wonderful. The only thing different is I made it with an oatmeal/brown sugar topping. I could not get enough of it."
