I used frozen rhubarb and frozen strawberries (that I had picked and frozen without sugar). The bars were great, easy to make and very tasty. I'm getting ready to make a couple more batches for a picnic this weekend.
Do you add ANY water to cook the rhubarb/strawberry mixture to bring to a boil???
Hi Cindy, you don't need any water in this recipe. The fruits make their own juices when they are cooked down. Happy baking!
This was an Awesome success. We loved it. I used parchment paper to line the pan, was very easy to remove the bars.
This recipe sounds very easy and good. I plan to make it for my daughts work group.
I have made these twice and everyone LOVED them. Just be careful not to press the crust to hard - or you'll have difficulty getting the bars out of the pan. I corrected that the second time I made them - and they were perfect!
