Got Rhubarb?

Rhubarb Crunch

2 cup flour
1 1/2 cup oats
2 cup brown sugar
1 cup melted butter
2 tsp. cinnamon
2 cups white sugar
4 Tbsp. cornstarch
2 tsp. vanilla
2 cups water
8 cups rhubarb, chopped

Combine flour, oats, brown sugar, butter and cinnamon until crumbly. Set aside. In saucepan, combine sugar and cornstarch, mix well. Add vanilla and water. Cook over low heat until thick and clear, stirring constantly until sugar dissolves. Line a 9x13 pan with part of the crumb mixture. Pour liquid with rhubarb over the crumb mixture in the pan. Top with remaining crumb mixture. Bake at 350 for 1 hour. Serve with whipped cream or ice cream if desired.

I made my husband stop eating so I could take this picture! :)

Jennifer,
Thank you for that great recipe. My dad gave us a rhubarb plant that should be ready to be harvested any time now. I usually just make strawberry rhubarb pie or jam, but now I have something else I can do with it.

Love,
Lanita

Do you think this would work with blackberries? I haven't got rhubarb but I do have all I can eat of blackberries... I was looking for a recipe the other day. I might just try this.
Thanks!
