This Weeks Recipe

Rhubarb Almond Crumble Squares

by Canadian Living Test Kitchen


It’s spring which means rhubarb is in season at the Market! This recipe comes from the Canadian Living Test Kitchen. It’s a take on the classic date square but just with a tangy twist! They say to look for fresh stalks of rhubarb that are firm and have the most vibrant colour, but discard the inedible leaves before cooking. If fresh rhubarb is unavailable, measure the same amount of frozen rhubarb, then thaw and drain.
