Rhubarb Crumble

2012 New season Rhubarb has arrived in The Country Store, Dungarvan - YIPEE!! I was overjoyed to find Rhubarb back on the shelves of country store today. Its early this year, must be the mild weather. To celebrate its arrival I made a Rhubarb crumble.

  • 750g Rhubarb cut into 2.5cm pieces
  • Honey to drizzle
  •  A squeeze of orange juice


  • 150g Plain flour
  • 100 butter, chilled and cubed
  • 75g brown sugar
  • 60g Porridge oats - Flahavans of course

  1. Pre heat the oven to 200C
  2. To make the crumble topping, put the flour in a large mixing bowl. Lightly rub in the butter until it resembles breadcrumbs. Stir in the sugar and oats.
  3. Generously drizzle the Rhubarb with honey and a squeeze of orange juice, then top with crumble and bake for 30-70 minutes until golden and the rhubarb juices are bubbling.
  4. Serve with cream or custard.
