    Rhubarb/Strawberry Crisp

    Allergy Kids Foundation Recipes | Angela Simon | May 2, 2010

    Rhubarb is here! From May to mid-June this perennial plant is available to harvest and buy. Look for the deeper red hue stalks as they naturally contain more sweetness.

    • 2 cups strawberries

    • 1 tablespoon orange zest
