April 12, 2011 – Sarah of Teapots and Cakestands chose Strawberry Rhubarb Double Crisp on pages 420 and 421. I had to make a sub due to local availabilities.
I really thought I would have to give this recipe a miss. Last week there was no rhubarb to be found in Darwin. This week there suddenly was- and even better it was lovely and fresh (but $6 for 1lb). The strawberries were no so fab and were about $6 for 8oz. I could justify the rhubarb but not the strawberries- so a jar of cherries was a reasonable sub.
I like this desert a lot. I went back for seconds- which is unusual for me (well, seconds immediately after firsts is unusual for me). I reduced the sugar in the filling by 1/4 cup- I like to pucker up with tart things.
Now go and check the blog roll and see how the other TWD bakers went.
