Rhubarb raspberry crisp

A few years ago, my in-laws brought us some rhubarb plants from their yard in San Diego. Most of the plants couldn't handle the Bay Area winters, but we do have a few that are still standing. I had enough rhubarb in the yard to put together this rhubarb and raspberry crisp.

rhubarb, raspberries, raspberry This recipe is similar to most other fruit crisp recipes that you'll find. There are a few ingredients that make this one a little more unique. The raspberries and rhubarb receive a healthy dose of orange zest, and toasted hazelnuts go in to the crisp topping.

I was out in the yard yesterday and noticed that our largest rhubarb plant has grown some more stalks, which means I can make another rhubarb dessert in the near future.

I made rhubarb pudding cakes yesterday. My first date with rhubarb and I am hooked!

I love rhubarb - and usually combine it with strawberries. It grows like wildfire in Minnesota. This recipe is a beautiful keeper and I will try it with raspberries.

I should really try rhubarb again...all I remember was eating some pretty gross rhubarb out of our backyard as a kid (no sugar I think was the problem) and I haven't touched it since.

I love making fruit crisps because they come together so quickly and the combo of rhubarb and raspberry sounds lovely! I also really like the hazelnuts on top!

Jenna said...

Those raspberries are absolutely stunning!! the crisp looks so good! I love how you have such fresh produce where you live. Its so hard to find fresh beautiful looking fruits and veggies here.

Sarah said...

Lovely combonation! It looks delicious :)

Ingrid said...

I know you're not going to be shocked but I haven't tried rhubarb yet. I've added onto my grocery list as I can see I'm missing out.

LOVE your photos! They are always so clear and crisp.

Happy holiday weekend, Sara!

I have never tried rhubarb, because the fruit is not in Indonesia.. :(

Janet said...

I love Rhubarb. One of my favorite desserts in England was rhubarb crumble - very similar to this dish. We would like to grow some, but the extremes of temerature in Oklahoma make it difficult. I just know this was yummptious.

Té la mà Maria - Reus said...

very good blog, congratulations
regard from Reus Catalonia Spain
thank you

Sophie said...

Hey Sara,
I have made the same recipe as you before! This is an excellent recipe & I bet your black raspberry ice cream would go excellent with this dessert! Yum Yum Yum,...!!!!!

Jamie said...

Sara, your photos are so gorgeous! And I love this Rhubarb-Raspberry combo better than Rhubarb-Strawberry. I'll bet this was so delicious!

@ pigpigscorner said...

Lovely pictures! I've yet to cook with rhubarbs!

Manggy said...

Fruit crisp *and* black raspberry ice cream? That sounds heavenly! :)

Angie's Recipes said...

The pic of raspberries look fabulous.
I bet the streusel topping is cripsy and delicious.

Helene said...

I love crisps so much, I usually make mine with apples. This is a great combo.

unconfidentialcook said...

I love the raspberries in there...so yummy! Rhubarb crisp is just the best.

Marta said...

Great crisp! I'm allergic to raspberries... do you think blackberries or strawberries would be a good sub in? Probably blackberries would give the most similar texture, right?
Thanks Sara!

Sara said...

Marta - I would use cherries or strawberries. Blackberries might be a little too tart with the rhubarb. But you could try blackberries and just up the sugar slightly!

Dragon said...

This dessert looks so warm and comforting. I love the combination of raspberries and rhubarb.

Donna-FFW said...

Oh this looks outrageously delicious Sara!

Teresa Cordero Cordell said...

Your photos are beautiful. Congrats on your FFF award.

Alex said...

I'd never heard it called a 'crisp' before but it looks scrumptious!

Natashya said...

Beautiful! I love rhubarb, I guess we have a hardier type here in Canada.

Allison Lemons said...

Sara, your photos are gorgeous! I was thinking about making a crisp with all the cherries that are in season around the Bay Area, but maybe I'll do this instead.

Amanda said...

This is exactly what I've been looking for--ideas for rhubarb. I've never really loved the stuff, but happened to get a free pound of it on Friday. What to do, what to do!
