I have rhubarb taking over my kitchen not to mention my garden bed that it resides in! At least three times a week I make something with rhubarb just to try to keep up with it. Here is far and away my family’s favorite way to eat the stuff…
Rhubard Apple Bake
- 6 Cups of diced rhubard
- 5 large apples peeled and diced
- 6 TBSP Orange juice
- 1 3/4 Cup Sugar (more or less according to your taste)
- 1 tsp Cinnamon
Mix this all together and put in large greased baking pan 9×13 or so.
- 1/2 Cup White Flour
- 1 Cup Whole Wheat Flour
- 1 1/2 cups Oats (I use old fashioned but quick cook is fine)
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/2 Cup (1 cube) melted butter
Combine in bowl till crumbly. Sprinkle on top of fruit mixture. Bake at 375 for 50 minutes or until it is lightly brown and the fruit is bubbly.
Serve with homemade vanilla ice cream!
Into the oven it goes…
I would have taken a picture of it done but my kids and hubby swarmed so fast when it was pulled out I didn’t have a chance! I hope you give this misunderstood vegetable/fruit a try… it can be very delicious!
