After being on vacation for five days, I was welcomed home by rhubarb plants that were ready to be picked!

Not like I needed to come home and make a dessert after eating amazing food in Chattanooga, Birmingham, Montgomery and Atlanta all week, but I've been waiting for this moment FOREVER!

Winter lasted extra long this year and the rhubarb got a much later start than usual.

My trip with the ladies was quite amazing and I will be sharing all of my travels with you in an upcoming blog post!

There are SO many pictures to edit and we did so much in such a short amount of time! It was such an epic vacation!

I grew up eating rhubarb as a child, and still love it as much today as I did then!

I have fond memories of picking rhubarb at my house or my grandparents, sprinkling it with sugar and eating it raw.

My mom also made the best rhubarb cake that my siblings and I looked forward to every spring.

Today's recipe is very easy to make and has such a great sweet and tart flavor combo going on.

I chose to use cherries and cherry jello, but strawberry or raspberry fruit with their flavor jello would also taste wonderful!

The sweetness and crunch from the oatmeal topping pairs perfectly with the tartness from the rhubarb.

What is in Rhubarb Cherry Crisp?

  • Rhubarb: Rhubarb is a perennial vegetable, though it is usually used as a fruit in desserts and jams. You use only the stalks of the rhubarb plant and they have a rich, tart flavor. The leaves of the rhubarb plant are poisonous, so make sure that they are not ingested. Rhubarb contains calcium, potassium and vitamin C.
  • Oatmeal: A type of coarse flour made of hulled oat grains that have either been milled, steel cut, or rolled. Oats are among the healthiest grains. They're a gluten free whole grain and a great source of vitamins, minerals, fiber and antioxidants. Some different oats include: Oat Bran, Steel Cut Oats, Rolled Oats, and Instant Oats.
  • Butter: A dairy product consisting of approximately 80% butterfat and made from the fat and protein components of milk or cream. Most commonly made from cow's milk, but can also be made from sheep, goat, yak, or buffalo milk.
  • Cherries: A small stone fruit that comes in a variety of colors and flavors. There are two major categories, tart and sweet cherries. Their colors can vary from yellow to deep blackish-red. Cherries are a good source of dietary fiber, vitamin C and are rich in antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds.
