(Advertisement) 1 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. Rhubarb Crumble (Six Servings) 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 packed 2/3 cup quick cooking oats, uncooked 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.
