Plot to Plate: Rhubarb, Strawberry and Orange Crumble

Rhubarb is plentiful on the allotment these days and I had a few leftover strawberries to use up quickly so I decided to make a quick crumble for dessert. The orange zest is really what makes this dish sing!

2 stalks rhubarb

~ 6 large strawberries

4 tbsp granulated sugar

Zest of half an orange 

100g plain flour

75g light brown sugar

30g porridge oats

Pinch salt 

50g butter

– Cut the rhubarb and strawberries into chunks and place in an oven proof dish. 

– Zest the orange over the dish and sprinkle with granulated sugar. 

– In a small bowl mix the remaining ingredients. Rub together until the mixture resembles coarse breadcrumbs. 

– Sprinkle the crumble mix over the fruit.

– Bake at 200°/Gas 6 for 30 minutes until the fruit is bubbling and the topping browned. 

– Leave to stand to cool for five minutes before eating. (Boiling sugar is hot!)
