Author Notes: This happened quite by accident when I came home with an armful of rhubarb determined NOT to make the strawberry/rhubarb combo. Well I didn’t have any strawberries anyway and a few days went by and it was time to deal with the rhubarb or chuck into the compost heap (only I don’t have one).


Serves: 6-8

PREP the Barb:SO, I trimmed all the dried out ends and chopped the rhubarb to ½ to 1-inch pieces. Never realized how dry and fibrous they were. Ok so now I have about 6 cups of cut up rhubarb.

  • 1/2 cup OJ
  • 6 cups Cut up Rhubarb
  • 1 pint Fresh Blueberries
  • 1 cup Dried Cherries and Caranberries
  • 1/2 cup Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla
  • 2 tablespoons Flour
  1. Mix all ingredients in a large bowl and add more OJ if it feels too dry.
  2. Preheat oven to 350. Make topping.


  • 1 cup Flour
  • 1/3 cup Butter
  • 3/4 cup Chopped Walnuts
  • 1/2 cup Brown Sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  1. Combine all the topping ingredients. Sprinkle on top of Rhubarb mixture.
  2. I ask my better half to keep on eye on the oven while I run errands but that rarely works out when the Mets are on. I return about an hour later to find my cobbler bubbling at the edges but a fairly disgusting dried out flour coat on top with a cement like consistency. There’s only one thing left to do and that’s to smash the hard crust right into the fruit. I smash it in, put it back in the oven for 15 minutes or so and then take my cobbler out and let it sit. Well what a shock when this thing was cool enough to taste. Absolutely delicious.
