Rhubarb and Apple Crumble Recipe


We are in the lull between the Pan Am and  Parapan Am Games in Toronto right now.  With the city still riding on the excitement and fun of the Pan Am Games it is the perfect time to try out some of the delicious recipes created by the Mississaugas of the New Credit First Nation (MNCFN), the Official Host First Nation of the games.  Chef Wolfman created several mouth watering recipes that were sampled all around Toronto on the #YouAreWelcome Food Truck.  I shared our experiences of being able to go out and taste the offerings of Toronto’s first First Nations Food truck.   The Ojibway cuisine was amazing, and has inspired me to give some of the recipes a try.  The Smoked Turkey Chili will be perfect for the fall, it is this Rhubarb and Apple Crumble recipe that has my mouth watering right now.

    Hubby complains that he always sees strawberry rhubarb and nothing else. I think I will surprise him with this recipe. Thanks!
