Strawberry-Rhubarb Crisp
Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: Crisp
  • 1 pound fresh or frozen strawberries, cut into slices
  • 6 cups rhubarb cut into ½-inch slices
  • 1 cup sugar
  • ⅓ cup cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • ½ teaspoon freshly grated ginger (or ¾ teaspoon ground)
  • Crisp topping:
  • ⅔ cup all-purpose flour
  • ⅔ cup brown sugar, well packed
  • ⅔ cup old fashioned rolled oats
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon ground ginger
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. In a large bowl, toss together the strawberries, rhubarb, sugar, cornstarch, zest, and ginger. Place the mixture in a shallow 8-cup baking dish. Loosely cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes.
  2. While the fruit mixture is baking make the crisp topping. In a medium sized bowl, mix together the flour, brown sugar, oats, salt, cinnamon, ginger, and butter, until the butter is distributed evenly.
  3. After the fruit has baked for 30 minutes, remove the foil and cover with the crisp topping. Return to the oven and bake, uncovered, for an additional 30 minutes.
  4. Serve at any temperature with ice cream as dessert or even a dollop of yogurt as breakfast.
