I was inspired by Noted Rhubarb episode when creating this recipe. Growing up we had a Rhubarb patch in the backyard. It had been growing in the same place every year for 50 years. Every year my grandmother would make a Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp that made plain ol' rhubarb taste like something very different from what I was used to eating raw out of the backyard. In making this recipe, I tried to recreate part of that flavor profile with limited experience with Rhubarbs and only having WF Sweet and Sour Rhubarb in my stash to work with in terms of Rhubarbs.
I did put my own spin on the profile by using Baked cinnamon roll combined with crumble topping to give this a nice baked doughy layer. My fruit layer consists of Cap Sweet strawberry as the carrier for my ripe strawberry SSA combined with WF sweet and sour rhubarb. The fruit layer works well together and is reminiscent of what I recall Strawberry Rhubarb tasting like after being cooked down with sugar. Its been a long time, I must admit, probably over 30 years since I tasted the real thing. I used SSA whipped cream and INW Shisha vanilla to work as the icing on this dessert as well as add body to the overall vaping experience.
