Easy Rhubarb Crisp
Summer time means fresh berries and rhubarb. This easy strawberry rhubarb crisp is a crowd pleaser and delicious. Sweet tangy fruit with a crunchy topping is one of the best treats on earth.
This is the first rhubarb recipe I have ever made. Technically, it’s a vegetable but you treat it like fruit. It’s very tart but when you add a little sugar and cook it down, it becomes a true dessert. Try this fruity crisp and give rhubarb a chance!
