Last of the rhubarb

I've picked the last of the rhubarb today. The remaining stalks are starting to die off. Looks like the end of the crumbles. I've made this one with the addition of brown sugar.

It makes the crumble very tasty. I also use brown sugar in the crumble topping.

The crumble is made in the ratio of 4:2:2, 4 being the flour or a mix of flour and oats, 2 being the sugar (brown in this case) and 2 being butter which was rubbed into the flour.

Forgot to take a pic of the finished crumble because we ate most of it.


PS Good job I've frozen a pile of crumbles already.


  1. It's sad when all the delicious fruits start coming to an end.

  2. Why was I always told never to pick rhubarb after the end of July? Yum.

  3. I have always used brown sugar in the crumble, but not mixed with the rhubarb. I will need to try this.

    God bless.

  4. I love rhubarb crumbles. I got a crumble recipe from a school kitchen where I once worked. Mix the oats, flour and sugar in a bowl. Melt the butter and then pou and it with the dry ingredients. The crumble topping looks quiet rustic but is so good. And you don't get messy hands either.

  5. I was given some windfall apples this week. Crumbles all the way!
