Best recipe I have ever used for Rhubarb. I happened to have elderberries in my freezer that I had picked too. Family loved it! I did too! It is definitely a keeper! Try it, you will not be sorry.

I have made this a couple of times and it turns out great. Nice combination of these abundant fruits. I have lots of both and I put plenty of them in the freezer to make pies and this crisp.

Rhubarb is one of our families favorites this is a wonderful version of fruit crisp. I used brown sugar in the syrup. Very good.
