Rhubarb-Apple Crisp


Oh, the ubiquitous rhubarb crisp. Everyone's got a recipe for it. And every time you bake it it's different, depending on the ripeness of the rhubarb, and where it was grown.

This recipe combines rhubarb and apples in about a 2 to 1 ratio, but it also works well 50/50 — we tried it with 4 cups of each, using the same amount of sugar, and it was delicious.

  • 6 cups sliced rhubarb
