What to Serve With Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp

Can You Freeze Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp?

Yes! You can freeze strawberry rhubarb crisp for up to two months, whether it’s baked or unbaked. If you freeze it unbaked, simply thaw in the refrigerator and bake it according to the recipe. To thaw a baked strawberry rhubarb crisp, reheat in the oven at 350 degrees F until the juices are bubbling. 

Allrecipes Community Tips and Praise

“It is so easy and so good,” raves Armenicus. “I grew up in the south and never really acquired a taste for rhubarb. The inclusion of the strawberries takes a lot of the edge off the rhubarb but retains the unique flavor.”

“I used frozen fruits and increased the amount of strawberries,” says Rita. “It came out super nice, not too sweet. Perfect with some vanilla ice cream.”

“Loved this and so did my hubby,” says TLCPRN. “I really appreciate the tartness of the rhubarb and the strawberries I got were top notch. Finished off a dinner of grilled salmon and asparagus that we ate outside on a beautiful night. Perfect meal!”
