Rhubarb Mandarin Crisp

"Many fruits & berries are hugely popular across the Scandinavian countries, but none show more prolific growth or uses than the rhubarb which finds its way into homemade jam, baked goods & a wide variety of other desserts. Many of my rhubarb recipes have come to my attention via Taste of Home. Now TOH has come through for me again by helping me to be ready for the flood of summer rhubarb when it arrives. Altho the recipe has "been around" for nearly 20 yrs, it might well be the most appealing of them all because it combines rhubarb w/some of my favorite ingredients - Tapioca, Mandarin oranges & oats. Starting your day w/this unique fruit crisp & a glass of milk or ending your day w/this as an evening dessert combined w/vanilla ice cream were 2 of the ways suggested for its use (See NOTE #2 in the Prep Steps Re standing time). ENJOY!"

NOTE #1 - "If using frozen rhubarb, measure rhubarb while still frozen. Then thaw completely & drain in a colander, but do not press liquid out

NOTE #2 - Prep time was shown as "20 min plus standing time". While you clearly will not want to eat this straight from the oven, warm would be best IMO so keep this in mind as you prepare to serve - OR - You can rely on your handy microwave. :-)
