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.

Strawberry Rhubarb Crumble Recipe

Course Dessert
Cuisine American
Author Robin Follette

Ingredients

Filling

  • 6 cups strawberries Fresh
  • 4 cups rhubarb
  • 1 cup honey
  • 1 cup all purpose flour Oat and whole wheat will also work.
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon

Crumble

  • 3 cups Quaker Old Fashioned oats Quick cooking will be okay if that's what you happen to have.
  • 1 cup Maple Syrup
  • 1 cup butter room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Instructions

Filling

  • Slice and chunk the strawberries. Pieces that aren't uniform in size and shape will allow the rhubarb and honey/flour to mix in well. Cut the rhubarb into 1/4" pieces.
  • Mix the cinnamon into the flour, and then mix in the honey. It will be very thick.

Crumble

  • Warm the butter to room temperature. Mix the salt into the oatmeal. Beat the butter and syrup together. It doesn't have to be perfectly blended. Combine these ingredients into a crumble topping. If you've made a crumble topping using white sugar you'll notice a difference in texture. That's normal.
  • Butter a 9" x 13" pan. Pour the strawberry rhubarb mixture into the bottom and add the crumble to the top. Pat down lightly. Bake at 350° for 30 minutes.
