Don’t let spring pass without enjoying the sweet-tart flavor of rhubarb. Typically paired with strawberries, it’s also great with cherries.

Ingredients

uncooked rhubarb

2 cup(s), cut into bite-size pieces

cherries

2 cup(s), pitted, fresh or frozen, thawed (halved if large)

preserves

½ cup(s), cherry variety

white all-purpose flour

10 Tbsp, divided

uncooked rolled oats

½ cup(s)

packed brown sugar

cup(s), dark variety

ground cinnamon

½ tsp

freshly grated nutmeg

¼ tsp, or less to taste

table salt

¼ tsp, or to taste

unsalted butter

4 Tbsp, chilled

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375ºF.
  2. In a large bowl, combine rhubarb, cherries and preserves. When fruit is well coated, add 2 tablespoons flour; stir to combine. Spoon fruit into a 2-quart baking dish; set aside.
  3. In another bowl, combine remaining 1/2 cup flour, oats, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. Cut butter into small pieces and work it into flour mixture with a fork until it resembles coarse crumbs.
  4. Spoon crumb topping over fruit and bake until fruit begins to bubble, about 25 to 30 minutes. Cool for 10 to 15 minutes. Yields about 3/4 cup per serving.

Notes

Blackberries work just as well as cherries in this old-fashioned fruit treat.
