Rhubarb Crumble Has
A 'Different' Flavor
With lots of crisp, straight stalks
of rhubarb still growing in many
home gardens, perhaps you’ll ap
preciate having this simple but un
usually tasty recipe for rhubarb
crumble we received from Rill
Perry, local sales supervisor of the
Meadow Gold Dairy. |
Orange juice, cinnamon and
l rolled oats give it a "different"
flavor, he says. ;
Beatrice Cooke, director of the
company’s test kitchens in Chi
cago developed the recipe. It's vir- j,
tually failureproof, she says. Just j
remember to cut the butter into
the flour mixture until crumbly.
3 cups diced rhubarb
2 tablespoons orange juice
% cup granulated sugar
Vi teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons butter
2/3 cup sifted all-purpose flour
1/8 teaspoon salt
Vi teaspoon soda
1/3 cup brown sugar, firmly
2/3 cup quick cooking oats,
Vi cup butter
Arrange rhubarb in bottom of but
tered 8-inch square pan. Sprinkle
with orange juice, granulated sugar
and cinnamon; dot with 2 table
spoons butter. Sift together flour,
salt and soda. Add brown sugar
and oats. Blend in butter until mix
ture is crumbly. Spoon over rhu
barb. Bake at 375 degrees for 4(5
minutes. Serve warm with whipped
cream or vanilla ice cream.
