Sweet Treat

The people whom we bought our house from were kind enough to plant a few things in our garden before we moved in. One of these yummy things is rhubarb. The first time I experienced rhubarb was actually just this year, baked into a delicious pie Eric's grandmother made. Since it is now growing tall and strong, I decided to give rhubarb a go and see if I could make something super tasty.

Blueberry Rhubarb Brown Betty

I used fresh rhubarb straight from my garden and many handfuls of blueberries that are in a huge box in my freezer. I actually found it really helpful that the blueberries were frozen so when I was mixing in the other ingredients, they didn't smush.

Add 1 Tb flour, 1/2 c sugar, 1 tsp salt, 1 Tb water and a few squirts of lemon juice to your fruit mixture and stir. Let sit for about 10 minutes or so to allow the juices to come out.

In a separate dish, put 6 Tb butter, 6 Tb flour, 1/2 c of brown sugar, and some sprinkles of cinnamon. Mix together.

Add 1/2 c of rolled oats

Put the fruit mixture into your pie dish and crumble your crumbs on top. Put in oven set to 350 and cook for about 30 minutes. Keep checking to make sure your crumble isn't burning.

So yummy!!!!! :) Enjoy with vanilla ice cream on top while still warm!
