Strawberry Rhubarb Double Crisp

Time for Tuesdays with Dorie! Our treat of the week is Strawberry Rhubarb Double Crisp, picked for us to try by Sarahe at Teapots and Cake Stands -- thank you, Sarahe! What a perfect springtime pick!

After lots of calling around to different grocery stores, I was finally able to find rhubarb at Krogers! It was so red and fresh, I couldn't wait to make this dessert. One pound of rhubarb all chopped up sure looks like a lot!

The crisp topping (and bottom) came together easily, I think the toughest part was chopping up the ginger, and even that wasn't too difficult with some kitchen shears.

Mmm
, love those crisp toppings!

The only change I made to the recipe was to bake it in an 11 by 7 glass baking dish instead of the standard square dish. I think all of the rhubarb filled up the bigger dish just perfectly.

And here is the beautiful double crisp fresh out of the oven. It was so yummy! Only my two boys tried it with me, picky husband would not try it and my daughter is at school, but I think she will love it. My two boys really enjoyed this dish and my five year old kept asking if I would remember to make this one again :) I loved it, fruit desserts are my favorite and this one was delicious!

I loved this week's recipe. Chopping crystallized ginger can be tricky, but I had good luck with that this week.

My rhubarb is not quite ready but a frozen berry mix worked quite well. Loved the ginger!

haven't had rhubarb since I was 8 years old, but I remember I really liked it.

Now if I could just find some rhubarb here in Podunk I would make it.

Love your crispy top.
