Rhubarb jam is definitely the star. Recipe worked well, but I was a bit underwhelmed by the flavour of the oaty bit.
Forget about the rest of it…make that rhubarb jam! Who would have ever thought rhubarb and grapefruit would marry so well. I doubled the recipe due to an abundance of rhubarb…ended up with 2 pint jars plus a little extra that I ate from the pot. So delicious! Will try the bars, but the jam is perfect on it’s own, or maybe on yogurt or vanilla ice cream or pbj sandwich or….
These were so good. I made the rhubarb jam (without the hibiscus, used half a vanilla pod, and Meyer lemon) and it was so delicious that we were eating it by the spoonful. The acidity and tartness from the jam provided the perfect contrast to the nuttiness of the crumble. I used salted butter and 1/2 a tsp of Diamond Crystal. I would do 1/4 tsp next time. I used a springform round pan lined with butter parchment and it worked out well. People in my family who normally find desserts too rich went back for seconds!
This is the most delicious rhubarb recipes I’ve ever had! The brown butter with the nuts is amazing. I had to sub grapefruit for some blood oranges I had, and it worked great. Great ratios of jam to crumb, nice amount of sweet to tang. Magical and comforting – thanks for sharing.
I made these last night using a combination of walnuts and pecans (because that’s what I had on hand). For the filling, I used some purple plum jam I made last fall – we won’t have any fresh rhubarb around here any time soon! The bars are a bit crumbly but otherwise they are fantastic and delicious! The brown butter is totally worth the the trouble. The smell of these bars as they baked had us swooning! I will be putting this recipe in my “go to” pile and I will definitely try the rhubarb part when there is rhubarb around.
can I just use regular weed butter ???!!!

can you use vanilla extract if you don’t have vanilla bean?
can you use store bought jam? instead of making this jam?
