A Taste of Spring


This last weekend, I hit a wall. I decided that I had made more than enough apple based desserts for the winter and was ready to break out into spring. So what could be more of a breath of spring than a Rhubarb Crumble? It goes together one, two, three and disappears even faster. It is not a super sweet dessert but really good with vanilla ice cream on the side.

Rhubarb Crumble
Serves 6

1.5 lbs rhubarb split lengthwise cut into half inch pieces
1 large apple peeled, cored and minced
1 packet of Vanilla sugar

½ cup flour
⅓ cup soften butter
⅓ cup sugar


Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Put rhubarb and apple in a 13” oval gratin dish. Sprinkle with vanilla sugar.

In a bowl combine butter, flour and sugar with fingers until crumbly. Sprinkle over the rhubarb and apple mixture. Bake for 30-40 mins until golden brown.

Bon Appetit.

If you cut up the rhubarb and leave it with the sugar (and a spoon full of orange juice) in a covered dish or pan overnight to melt...it tastes even better!
