Berry Rhubarb Crisp

Last year we cut and froze a lot of rhubarb.    First time ever!    Just recently, we realized how much we had in the freezer and we decided to start using it up.    We love the traditional strawberry-rhubarb combinations, but since our strawberries have already been used, we decided to try other combinations with rhubarb.

Turns out that Blueberry-Rhubarb and Blackberry-Rhubarb are just as good as [if not better than] the strawberry version.

Lily made a couple of crisps so we could do the tasting.   Delish!

2 cups blueberries or blackberries or strawberries
3 cups rhubarb
1/2 cup sugar  [3/4 cup if you know your fruit is tart.]

Preheat oven to 350.  Butter an 8 x 8 baking dish.  Toss the fruit with the sugar and put in baking dish.  Sprinkle all over with topping.  Bake for 50 minutes or until browned and bubbling.

1/2 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup flour
1/2 sugar
1 cup oats

Cut together well with pastry blender or food processor. 

Notes:  We use this crisp topping on a lot of different things.   You can use white or whole wheat flour.  You can use regular or old fashioned rolled oats.   It's good with white or brown sugar.
