Reviews forRhubarb Mandarin Crisp
"This is one of the best rhubarb recipes I've ever made or eaten. Suggestion was made to double the mandarin oranges but I didn't have another can. I did however have some snack cans of diced peaches so I drained 2 and added them amongst the oranges. The sweetness of the mandarins and peaches offset the tartness of the rhubarb. Delicious ! Took it to a meeting and watched people take seconds. Served it with real whipped cream in a can. easy to make is a bonus."
"Add tsp pumpkin pie spice, or cinnamon & ground cloves, to step #1."
"Delicious! Our neighbor had a bumper crop of rhubarb this year so had to try this. I subbed 1# of sliced strawberries in place of the mandarin oranges and it was wonderful."
"Thank you so much! Looks delicious and I can't believe I have not seen this recipe sooner. Sounds good with rhubarb, mandarin and strawberries...possibly peaches later in the season. I'm jumping way ahead here. Still a chilly April for us. Please forgive me for rating before I try it..."
