"Good recipe, but, I used a 20-oz. can of sweetened crushed pineapple and the same amount of sugar, and it was still too sour. Next time I'll use more sugar."

"Wow! What a simple preparation for a dessert that's full of flavor. Also easy to make Gluten free as well. I added 1/4 cup finely chopped crystallized ginger to the crumble mix for a bit of zest and it got rave reviews! Definitely keeping this one for my rhubarb collection!"

"We are big rhubard fans, so I was excited to try this recipe.I have never paired pineapple with rhubarb, but I thought the flavors went well together. Both my husband and I loved this dessert and I will definately make it again."

"Easy to make, this very lightly tart dessert is perfect for a summer dessert. I think the only change I'll make is to occasionally use strawberries. This recipe is what my husband refers to as a "keeper.""

"This is the perfect warmer-weather recipe. It's not too much sweet and just a hint of tart. Together with whipped cream, it's the perfect ending."
