April is here and rhubarb is in season! There’s something special about how rhubarb and spring go so well together, so pick some from your garden and start cooking!
Peaking in the spring and typically lasting only until early June, rhubarb is a treat you’ll want to enjoy before it’s gone. Although tart on its own, sweetened rhubarb is the main feature for many delicious desserts, from jams and compotes to pies, tarts, cakes, cookies, and more. While the red stalks have a stronger, sweeter and more robust flavor than the green, both make delightful dishes with extraordinary flavor!
Grandma’s Rhubarb Crunch is a savory and decadent treat that you can add to your Easter table with little effort. For the best texture and amazing wood fire flavor, we suggest cooking it on one of our award-winning pellet grills.
Serve it warm, topped with whipped cream or ice cream, or chilled - you can’t go wrong with either because it simply tastes too good.

1 C flour
