I love this recipe. I made it for a bbq gathering and it turned out perfectly. Served it with vanilla bean and impressed the heck out of my husband! Am making it again as the kids love it! I thought the rhubarb would be hard and sour, but it was not tart at all. I let the rhubarb sit in the sugar for a couple of hours as I was preparing the other dishes. It's a nice quick recipe with great results.

This crisp is excellent and super easy! I think the ratio of rhubarb to strawberries to sugar is just right, and the granola I used added just a little more sweetness (a vanilla pre-made granola from Whole Foods). I used orange juice instead of liqueur which added a really wonderful layer of flavor. Like other reviewers, I served it with vanilla ice cream.

I will definitely try this as I can tell it will be good. For those that dislike the edge rhubarb can have, try this tip. Pour boiling water over the chopped rhubarb and steep for a couple of minutes. Drain well and proceed with the recipe.

luv'd this crisp...althought I added only 1 cup of strawberries and had to substitute 3 cups of saskatoons(service berries)but I got rave reviews from everyone who tried it. I would have to say it is one of the best crisp recipes I have encountered over the years.

This truly is outstanding - wow! I also served it warm with light vanilla bean ice cream. Sooo good. My cousin has since made it and agrees it is yummy.

Incredible! I made this for my father b/c he loves rhubarb! I am not a huge fan of rhubarb myself, but I was surprised how this recipe hides the bitterness that rhubarb typically has. I would not alter the recipe, but a nice scoop of vanilla bean ice cream is a nice addition! I will definitely make this recipe again!

I will make this again. It was delightful. We ate it with a vegetarian dinner. My husband prefers it to cake, and asked for it for his birthday instead of cake.

I used this recipe as one of three dessert choices for a large dinner. I had assembled all the ingredients before hand and was able to quickly put it together shortly before my guests arrived. I used end-of-the-season rhubarb and it was just fantastic! I served it just slightly warm with ice cream. Several guests gave it rave reviews. I put this in the oven just before my guests arrived so it tasted very freshly made and still warm. I will definitely use recipe again. It is special enough to serve to guests at a nice dinner party as well as suitable for a casual family meal.
