This recipe was sent to me by a woman who received it from relatives in England. The crunchy sugar topping is a delicate treat. My daughter Danielle asks me to make this dessert year-round (it's her favorite recipe in my cookbook) but I like to wait until the berries are in season.
Strawberry paired with rhubarb is the quintessential combination for spring. Tuck this slightly tart, lightly sweet dessert into a picnic basket or school lunch bucket. Bring it to your next cookout - or simply enjoy it, feet propped up, with some late afternoon tea.
