Strawberries are one of my favourite fruits, and with rhubarb it is a perfect match!
A while ago, while making a crumble, I made a lot of the crumble topping and froze it in ‘small crumble’ lots:
My recipe is:
- 15o gm white flour
- 50 gm white sugar
- 50 gm butter
Mix the flour and sugar together. Rub in the butter until like fine breadcrumbs – or use your mixer to do this! Sprinkle onto fruit mix, or freeze until required.
We got some rhubarb out of the garden, so I washed it and chopped into small pieces and put into a pot with some orange juice and a sprinkle of sugar. Once it had softened, I added frozen strawberries, letting the heat in the rhubarb melt the strawberries. I tasted to make sure the sweetness was right, then put it into my dish.
Then sprinkled over the crumble mix and put in the oven at about 180 degrees until golden and bubbling. It was so good!
