Couldn’t find fresh or frozen rhubarb so I used frozen tart cherries. I used 4 cups of cherries and 2 cups of fresh strawberries. I also whipped up a pint of heavy cream and added 1 1/2 tsp of vanilla so I would have more for the final topping. It came out amazing!
Nice flavor. Used 7 cups of rhubarb with the same 1 cup of brown sugar with a dash of salt. Not an overly sweet dessert, which is a nice surprise.
Can this dessert be frozen
I've been making a very similar recipe for years and I use frozen rhubarb and frozen strawberries without the added sugar in some brands of frozen fruits. The chopped pecans in the crust are the secret, at least as far as my family is concerned. My husband buys bulk organic pecans during the Christmas holiday and then after a couple of months we freeze them (in the shells). Then when I want them, he shells them for me (gives him something to do now that he's a retired fireman :) He likes to help so it's a good recipe for both of us!
I noticed that the rhubarb only cooks for about 5 minutes. Is that enough to cook the rhubarb?
I want to make this - it sounds great, but one quick question. Doesn't the whipping cream need to be sweetened? Especially for the topping? Do you just follow a regular recipe for whipped cream?
TanyaBFN just omit the nuts..that is all you have to do...
AMAZING!! This is easier than it looks! It is the best dessert I have ever made!! I've made many desserts in the last 35 years! It is beautiful too! Great for any occasion! Follow recipe exactly as it says!!
How could you make the crust without nuts? Any suggestions? Thanks
