Part of embracing the spring and early summer is to:
1. Thank the Lord for the living through another winter and
I <3 Rhubarb. Always have, always will. Unfortunately, I do not have any rhubarb plants. So, I depend on friends and coworkers - and I highly grateful to them when they provide! I was very fortunate this week that one of my coworkers brought me some rhubarb. HAPPY DANCE!! I asked the teenager what she would like . .and this is what she chose. Good choice, Teenager... good choice.
6 Cups of Rhubarb, washed and diced/sliced
2 Cups Granulated White Sugar
1 Teaspoon Cinnamon
2 Tablespoons Cornstarch
1 and 1/2 Cups Oatmeal
1 and 1/2 Cups Flour
2/3 Cup Brown Sugar
1/2 Teaspoon Baking Soda
1/2 Cup Butter, melted
Step 1: Prepare a 9x13 baking dish by spraying with baking spray. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Step 2: In a large bowl, add the rhubarb, white sugar, cinnamon and cornstarch. Mix together. Pour the mixture into the 9x13 pan and spread into an even layer.
Step 3: In that (now) empty bowl, add the flour, brown sugar, and baking soda. Mix together. Add the butter. Mix together. This will be lumpy, but do the best you can.
Step 4: Spread the flour/sugar/butter mixture over the rhubarb in the pan. Break up an large chunks of the dry mixture with your fingers.
Step 5: Place in oven and bake for 45 minutes - until hot and bubbly.
To serve, scoop out a big spoonful into a bowl. Adorn with either whipped cream or ice cream. For an even better treat - just pour a little 1/2 and 1/2 over your serving (swoon!).
