This recipe in itself deserves 4 stars, however, when tweaked a bit, the results are 10 stars! I used 4 cups of strawberries (roughly a pound and a half) and 4 cups of rhubarb (5 long stalks), 5 Tbsp flour and 3/4 cup of sugar. I probably could have used even less sugar. Bottom line is, if your strawberries are fresh and ripe, you really don't need that much sugar. I will likely try 1/2 cup next time. Then I poured the fruit mixture into a 10 x 15 1/2 bar pan. I did not adjust the topping-- I made as the recipe called for and there was more than enough to cover the top. I baked for the same amount of time and at the same temp and it came out perfect! (just be sure to put aluminum foil down in your oven because the juices run over the side of the bar pan!) This recipe will easily serve 12 and is absolutely the perfect combination of sweetness, tartness and crunchiness. Great summer recipe!
