Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp {Gluten Free}

It’s rhubarb season here in Pennsylvania, and you know what that means: Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp!  At least, that’s what it means in my house.

Last week I stopped by my favorite organic farm stand and picked up 4 quarts of organic homegrown strawberries and a bunch of local organic rhubarb, and I came home and made a gluten-free strawberry rhubarb crisp.

First, I gathered my ingredients.

And then I washed and chopped the rhubarb into 1-inch pieces.  If you’ve never eaten rhubarb before, don’t be tempted to try it raw.  Just trust me on this one.

I hulled and sliced the strawberries and added the sugar, cornstarch, lemon juice, and salt.  Oh, and the rhubarb.

Then I carefully stirred it all together and poured it into a baking pan.

Okay, so that part’s done.  Next comes the topping.

I put the topping ingredients into my food processor, gave it a whirl (or a few pulses) and voila!  Crumb topping.

(If you don’t have a food processor, you can cut the butter into the flour mixture like you do with a pie crust.)

Now, just sprinkle it on top of the rhubarb concoction, and pop it in the oven at 425 for 35-40 minutes.

And there you have it!  Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp.
