Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp

by Heidi @ Food Doodles on May 16, 2011

A part of our very busy weekend was going to the farmers market on Saturday.  Even in the very beginning of the season there is always something interesting and it seems like the market is getting better and better each year.  I cannot wait until the middle of summer this year, I can just imagine how fantastic it will be.  Does anyone else get excited just wondering what interesting things you’ll find at the farmers market?

I’ve confessed my love before for being able to use a lot of local ingredients.  Of  course we don’t eat completely local but I love the challenge of using as many local ingredients as I can.  At the farmers market my sister in law and I found some huge vibrant red rhubarb and I couldn’t help but buy some.  Then we had such a fun afternoon using it all 😀

I had local strawberries in the freezer from last year, but soon we’ll have fresh local strawberries to use.  The honey I used is also local and the oats and flour could be sourced locally.  I’ve just sent my application for our grain CSA this year and can’t wait to get that!

Awesome! My rhubarb is still very small. I couldn’t believe the size of the rhubarb I saw at the market so I had to get some. Can’t wait till I can use the stuff from my garden 😀

My mom used to make the best strawberry-rhubarb pie. I’m pretty sure your crisp version is much healthier. I actually got some rhubarb in my CSA box this week, so I’ll have to give this a try!

Awesome! I really wish we had a fruit/veggie csa. I don’t ever remember having strawberry rhubarb anything when I was younger, it was my hubby that convinced me to give it a try. Now I love it 🙂

You have access to a grain CSA? That is awesome!! I get excited just thinking about farmer’s markets, too. Unfortunately the best one is about 45 minutes away – but it will definitely be worth it to get to it at least once a month. While I love knowing my vegetables and fruit is grown locally, what I love most is finding stuff like sauces, jams, oils, syrup…and who knows what else?!
This crisp looks wonderful. I can’t wait to make more with rhubarb – maybe next time I won’t be selfish with my strawberries and will go for the ever-popular strawberry rhubarb combo 🙂

I’m totally excited about the CSA. We don’t have a produce one here which is disappointing 🙁 Too bad you live so far from a farmers market, but they are worth it to go at least once in a while. You never know what’s going to be there 😀

Ooooh man, these look delicious, I want to reach through the screen and devour them haha
I am such a huge crisp fan… the fruit, sugar, and crumble added together equals heaven.
Next time I get some rhubarb, I absolutely MUST use your recipe YUM!
Oh and a grain CSA? That sounds amazing… I’m going to have to see if there are any of those in my area…
