  • 12.5 oz rhubarb
  • 1 lb apples
  • ½ tablespoon butter
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1/2 cup slivered almonds
  • 1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • custard or vanilla sauce or vanilla ice cream to serve


  • Clean the rhubarb and chop it into slices, about 1,5 cm/ 0.6 inches thick. Next, peel the apples, remove the core and chop the apples into chunks.
  • Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius/ 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Cook: Melt the butter in a pan and saute the rhubarb and the apples for a couple of minutes. Add the cinnamon and the honey and continue cooking until all the liquid has evaporated; it won't take long. The apple chunks will remain more or less whole, while the rhubarb will almost disintegrate and form a kind of sauce for the apples.
    Taste and adjust the taste with a little bit more honey, if necessary. Don't make it too sweet; remember that the crumble is sweet, and you will serve this with more sweet stuff. Pour the mixture in a medium casserole form.
  • Toast the almond slivers in a small pan without adding any fat. Keep an eye on them and shake the pan regularly. Transfer to a plate as soon as they start to get golden and fragrant.
  • Crumbles: Place the flour and the chopped butter in a bowl. Rub with your fingers until you obtain crumbs. Add the sugar and about 2/3 of the almonds and mix them. Distribute the crumble evenly over the rhubarb-apple mixture in the casserole form. Sprinkle with the remaining almond slivers.
  • Bake for about 20 minutes or until the crumbles are golden brown.
  • Serve hot, warm, or cold with custard or vanilla sauce or vanilla ice cream. The vanilla ice cream is perfect when the crumble is still hot or warm.
