PWE Rhubarb Crisp at

A sure sign of spring at Passing Wind Estates is the rhubarb is ready to harvest. Here is the first fresh rhubarb dish of the year, PWE Rhubarb.

I started by cutting up the apple and the rhubarb.

Then I made the crisp topping by mixing the sugar, flour, oats, butter and cinnamon.

I made a sauce by mixing the sugar, maple syrup, cornstarch, water and vanilla in a saucepan. Then I heated it over medium heat until it slightly thickened and got glossy.

I put the rhubarb and apples in a greased 8 inch square casserole. I poured the sauce over the rhubarb. Then the topping was sprinkled over the rhubarb and sauce.

I cooked the crisp in a 350 F oven for 55 minutes.

The Verdict

Sigh, I love the first rhubarb crisp of the year. The apples don’t make it a rhubarb apple crisp as they aren’t really noticeable in taste. However, I think they give the crisp a better syrupy texture. If you haven’t made a rhubarb crisp, why not?
