Rhubarb Crunch

“We have quite a large rhubarb patch and are always trying out different recipes. This one was given to us by Marion Cardwell, who owned and operated the Okemo Lantern Lodge for over 40 years. Marion does not give out too many of her trade secrets so we felt privileged to receive this one.” –The Combes Family Inn, Ludlow, Vermont
