Strawberry Rhubarb Crumble Recipe
Strawberry Rhubarb Crumble is one of our favorite desserts. Late-bearing rhubarb ensures I have fresh rhubarb at the same time the strawberries are ripe. If you don’t have both ripe together you can freeze clean, slice and freeze the rhubarb in quart bags. This recipe works with frozen strawberries but you’ll need to be very careful to drain the juice. Save that juice! You can make strawberry jelly.
Do you know the proper way to harvest rhubarb? I cut the stalks for years. That’s not right. To harvest rhubarb, pull the stalk from the ground. It will let go with minimal pressure from you, and this will signal the plant to produce more stalks. I leave at least one-third of the stalks on the plant.

Vanilla or strawberry ice cream are a great addition to Strawberry Rhubarb Crumble, especially when the crumble is warm. Warm, juice crumble topped with cold but slightly melting ice cream… Mouth watering.
