Just Like Grandma's

My Grandma Shank always makes
a wonderful rhubarb crunch.

She said she had boys that didn't
like rhubarb but liked this.

I was happy to have the recipe in
an old cookbook Grandma gave me. She 
went through and checked all the recipes
she has used over the years.

I consider it a real treasure,
and so is my Grandma.

Mmm... ooey gooey on the inside and crunchy on the outside.

Grandma's Rhubarb Crunch

4 cups chopped rhubarb

1 cup flour
3/4 cup oatmeal
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup melted butter
 1 tsp. cinnamon

1 cup sugar
1 cup water
2 Tbsp. cornstarch
1 Tbsp. strawberry jello
1 tsp. vanilla

Chop rhubarb at set aside.
Combine thickening in a small saucepan and cook until thick.
Mix together crumbs and lightly press half of crumbs in a 9 in. baking dish.
Top with rhubarb and pour over thickening over rhubarb. Cover with
remaining crumbs. Bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes. 
Serve warm with vanilla ice cream.
