Author Notes: This happened quite by accident when I came home with an armful of rhubarb determined NOT to make the strawberry/rhubarb combo. Well I didn’t have any strawberries anyway and a few days went by and it was time to deal with the rhubarb or chuck into the compost heap (only I don’t have one).—blanka.

PREP the Barb:SO, I trimmed all the dried out ends and chopped the rhubarb to ½ to 1-inch pieces. Never realized how dry and fibrous they were. Ok so now I have about 6 cups of cut up rhubarb.
–Step1:Mix all ingredients in a large bowl and add more OJ if it feels too dry.
–Step2: Preheat oven to 350.
–Step1: Combine all the topping ingredients.
–Step2: Sprinkle on top of Rhubarb mixture.
I ask my better half to keep on eye on the oven while I run errands but that rarely works out when the Mets are on.
I return about an hour later to find my cobbler bubbling at the edges but a fairly disgusting dried out flour coat on top with a cement like consistency. There’s only one thing left to do and that’s to smash the hard crust right into the fruit. I smash it in, put it back in the oven for 15 minutes or so and then take my cobbler out and let it sit.
Well what a shock when this thing was cool enough to taste. Absolutely delicious.
