Rhubarb Blueberry Crisp Recipe

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.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 1 hour YIELD:4-6 servings


  • 3 cups chopped fresh or frozen rhubarb
  • 2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup cold butter
  • 1/2 cup slivered almonds, toasted


  • 1. In a large bowl, toss rhubarb and blueberries with sugar and flour. Transfer to a greased 2-qt. baking dish.
  • 2. In a small bowl, combine brown sugar and flour; cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in almonds. Sprinkle over fruit.
  • 3. Bake at 350° for 1 hour or until bubbly. Serve warm. Yield: 4-6 servings.

"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."
