Recipe of the Week: Sweet &-Easy Strawberry-Rhubarb Crunch

Fresh strawberries and rhubarb – the sweet, tart flavors of late spring in Ohio! Earlier this month, Lehman’s hosted our first-ever Customer Appreciation Day at our store in Kidron, Ohio. THIS is the treat that was served that day … and here’s how much of it was made especially for the occasion. We had many requests for the recipe, and here it is!
