Adventures in Cooking: Strawberry Crumble

Mmmm strawberry crumble made from my Farmers Market booty. My apartment smells so good right now!

ETA: Now that i’m on a real computer that’s not my phone…
The recipe is from the lovely Deb of Smitten Kitchen, found here. Other various & sundry notes…

  • This is the 2nd time i’ve made this recipe; the first time, i’m fairly sure I used all rhubarb. I used about 2 – 2.5 quarts of strawberries this time.
  • The crust came out infinitely better this time, I think it’s because last time I only softened the butter, while this time I melted it completely.
  • Strawberries are a lot sweeter than rhubarb, and also a lot more juicy. I think I got the amount of sugar right (less than the 1/2 cup the recipe calls for, maybe closer to 1/3 cup?), but I think I needed more corn starch. I put in 3 T in & the filling was still pretty soupy. Probably need at least 1 more tablespoon.
