Rhubarb Crumble

We made this rhubarb crumble recipe having been spurred on by the success of our gooseberry crumble recipe. The rhubarb growing in the garden took off like a rocket early this year and then the poor weather, and probably our over picking, slowed it right down. It has come back again so we decided to make a rhubarb crumble.

Unlike the gooseberry version, you need to cook the rhubarb prior to putting it in the oven.
