For those of you who are like the cashier at Crest and have no idea what rhubarb is, this is it:
I actually tried it raw last night - it's extremely sour. I thought that it would be a lot like eating celery, but the texture is totally different. Because rhubarb is so sour, most recipes containing rhubarb also call for a lot of sugar. :)
For rhubarb crisp, you will need 6 cups of chopped rhubarb. You will have to buy 8-10 stalks. Once it is chopped up, pour it into a shallow 6X10 baking dish.
(I halved the recipe ... hence the smaller dish)
Then sprinkle 1 Tablespoon of cornstarch and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon over the chopped rhubarb.
In a separate bowl, combine 6 tablespoons of butter, 3/4 of a cup of sugar, 3/4 of a cup of oats, and 3/4 of a cup of flour. Work together until crumbly. Pour over the rhubarb.
Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes. It's really good served with vanilla ice cream!
