Berry Delicious Rhubarb Crisp

What a perfect springtime dessert! It's filled with color and fresh fruit flavor the whole family will savor. I sometimes grate about a tablespoonful of fresh orange or lemon zest and add it to the crumb mixture for extra flavor. —Sharon Hadinger, Dublin, Ohio

    All in all good, but would decrease brown sugar next time. A little too sweet for my taste.

    This was great. I am not accustomed to the rhubarb, so I am not sure I would add it in the future. But all in all it was great.

    Excellent recipe! I used all fresh fruit and substituted blueberries for the blackberries, as they are cheaper and more widely available. I received many compliments and requests for the recipe!

    My family loved this. This is the best "crisp" recipe I have ever made and will be the only one from now on.
