Rhubarb and Apple Crisp

Personally I love tart rhubarb and enjoy when my desserts have that puckering effect but i get that not everyone feels the same way so combing another fruit such as apples makes the dish a bit sweeter, you can use any other fruit really such as blueberries or strawberries as long as you end up with 5 cups of fruit all together.
