Rhubarbs for the summer

I’m spending some days in the Swedish countryside and taking the opportunity to do some gardening. Something that really remind Swedes of summertime is rhubarbs! You can’t spend a summer in Sweden without eating rhubarbs. So here you go, my best rhubarb crumble recipe:

Rhubarb Crumble
2 cups chopped rhubarbs
1/2 cup sugar
5 ounces butter
1 1/4 cup flour
1 pinch salt
1/4 cup sugar

Clean the rhubarbs under running water, if they are large steamed then you will need to carefully peel the out layer off using a potato peeler.
Chop the rhubarbs and place them in a saucepan with 1/2-cup sugar. Bring to a boil and then lower to a simmer for about 10 minutes until most of the excess fluids have boiled off.
Butter a pyrex dish, and pour in the rhubarbs.
Set oven to 300 F.
Use a blender to mix butter and flour, salt and sugar to crumbs. Spread the crumbs on top of rhubarb mixture and bake on 300 F for about 20 minutes or until it’s golden on top.
