Yesterday afternoon I made my first trip to the farmers market! There wasn't a whole lot of booths due to it being a weekday but they said Saturday morning there will be lots more. I bought some fresh rhubarb and came home and made rhubarb crisp for the first time. It was very yummy and my family gobbled up every last bite! Here is the recipe that I got it from, I used the second one down called Crumbly Topped Rhubarb and I made just a few substitutions.
3 c Young Rhubarb; Unpeeled And Diced
1 T Unbleached White Whole Wheat Flour
1/2 c Organic Sugar
1 t Cinnamon
1/8 t Sea Salt
1 T ;Water
6 T Butter
6 T Unbleached White Whole Wheat Flour
1/2 c Organic Brown Sugar; Firmly Packed
1/2 c Rolled Oats;
Preheat the oven to 350 Degrees F. In a 9x13 baking dish, combine the first 6 ingredients (this made a very thin desert, next time I might try a 9x9 pan). Cream the butter with the flour and brown sugar, then stir in the oats. Sprinkle over the rhubarb. Bake in oven, 350 Degrees F., for 40 minutes or until the rhubarb is tender and the top is brown.
Like I said, it was great! I might play around with it next time and try and replace the sugar with honey or maple syrup for a more natural sweetener.
I'm going back Saturday and hoping to buy some free range farm fresh eggs and some local meat. The people that were there last night were quite expensive and I know of another lady that is supposed to have her meat a little cheaper. I'm hoping she will be there Saturday. I also bought a bar of homemade natural soap which is delightful!
