Foodie Friday: Rhubarb Crumble

Did you know - rhubarb is a vegetable (it's related to sorrel and dock) ?

Rhubarb grows in two crops. The first, which arrives early in the year, is forced, grown under pots, with the main crop grown outdoors later in the year. As this is the perfect time for the first "forced" crop, today's recipe is another warming classic - Rhubarb Crumble.
