Homemade Rhubarb Crisp Recipe
1 cup oats, toasted
3/4 cup flour
1 cup brown sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup water
2 Tbsp. corn starch
1 tsp. vanilla
4 cups rhubarb, chopped into 1-2" chunks
Optional: 1-2 tsp. grated fresh ginger root
Allow them to cool for about 10-15 minutes.
I think ginger brings out a really great flavor in the rhubarb. Try it!
Combine sugar and corn starch in a small saucepan. Add water, and heat over medium heat until the mixture boils.
Strawberry-Rhubarb Crisp: Use 3 cups rhubarb, 1 cup strawberries
Apple Crisp: Use 4-6 cups chopped apples. Reduce sugar and water in sauce to 1/2 cup.
Cherry Crisp: Use 4 cups pitted tart cherries. Add 1/2 cup chopped, blanched almonds to the crust, and substitute 1/4 tsp. almond extract for the vanilla.
