Strawberry Rhubarb Cobbler Crisp Recipe - Artisanal Boards

As we prepared our strawberry and rhubarb cobbler crisp recipe we noticed how beautifully it complimented our live edge cherry cutting board and we thought we would share our easy recipe.....

We will cook for an hour.  Preheat oven to 325, a lower temperature allows longer cooking and saturation of flavor, delicious.

Load your 9 x 9 pan with cut strawberries and rhubarb in the proportion you like almost to the top, sprinkle with sugar, add some spices like cinnamon, nutmeg or vanilla, add a pinch of salt.  Then cover with cobbler crisp: mix oats, flour, butter or a substitute, add a pinch of salt.  Then place some more butter on top with a bit more sprinkled spice and sugar.  This is full proof fruit and berry cobbler and so good.

Approximate Ingredients for a 9x9 pan:

Here is what you need but you can't go wrong here so mix it up:

  • Equal parts of Strawberries and Rhubarb - we used a 2 cups each here
  • Equal parts of Oats and Flour - we used about a 3/4 cup of each
  • A cup Sweetness - we used sugar and honey
  • Spices to taste - we used some nutmeg and vanilla, cinnamon is also great
  • A few pinches or sprinkles of salt
  • Butter - you can use a substitute - be generous with half a stick or a bit more
  • Woops - we added home made whipped cream and mint - YUM

We always use organic and local ingredients, substitutes are fine, you can eliminate the flour and use just gluten free oats, or make a a no sugar non fat dish.  Always goodness, enjoy the love!

If you love to cook and serve, spend a lot of time in the kitchen enjoy looking at our beautiful live edge cutting boards and serving platters.

Cutting Board Size Guide

As we handcraft our live edge and traditional cutting, chopping and serving boards, sizing does vary.
  - We try to be close in meeting or exceeding our approximated dimensions, providing you with a board that is equal to or larger than specified.
  - All of our live edge boards are crafted in a series/collection which will have unique sizes, so a medium in one collection may be different than in another, please read our measurements and other sites carefully.
  - If you have a specific need contact us, we will try to accommodate.

What is the difference between a live edge and traditional cutting boards and how are they measured?
  - Live Edge refers to the natural contour of the outside of a tree and mother nature's dimensions always vary. How we sell this is explained in more detail below.
  - Traditional refers to a man-made edge with a specific cut dimension.

Our live edge board dimensions are always expressed as:
  - Size = Length x Width, this is shown as: Medium = 18 x 12 (example only)
  - Length is generally as represented unless noted, or uniquely shaped as in the pictures.
  - Width always varies This size is intended to be greater than represented on the larger surface and as large as the next size up.  7” the width of a Medium may be up to 8 ½’ the size of a large.  Sometimes this is represented by an arrow, 14 x 7 > 8 1/2.
  - Thickness is represented in the description, this may vary and will be represented as such.
  - Your choice will always be larger than expressed but smaller than the next larger size.
  - We use the largest surface to approximate these measurements.

What is a Golden Rectangle?
An aesthetically pleasing rectangle with an aspect 1:1.6.  Discovered by the Classic Greeks and used in their architecture, it also mirrors patterns on leaves and in plants. 

What size should I buy?
What do you need or want, something big or small, easy or impressive, all of our boards are beautiful. Take your hands and approximate the size you want and measure, measure your counter or island, measure your storage. Many of our live edge chopping slabs have machined edges for under cabinet display. We also have stands that can display your board and frame your tablet.

Can I get a custom size?
Yes. Available in live edge and traditional see custom section. We also make counters and tables.

Why are there different sizes for different series of live edge boards?
This has to do with availability, quality and our customer’s needs. Some examples:

Our customers may want a lighter board as a daily cutter that is easy to handle and wash off in the sink, this would be a cutting board and up to 1”. They may want a chopping slab, for their counter or island, these also can be washed or sponged off, but weighs at least twice as much as a cutting board.

Quality and Longevity, importantly thickness vs. width applies to our kiln dried wood, specifically crafted for our purpose.
  - A live edge board that is only 1” thick and 12” wide may not be stable it may warp and crack.
  - A live edge boards that is 1 ¾” thick could be up to 25” wide and a 2 ½” thick board could be up to 40” wide.
  - Varieties of wood availability and stability vary.
  - Traditional boards may or may not be more stable and more durable.

Please choose carefully and contact us with questions, as we try to keep our prices as low as possible returns are very costly to us.
