Lovely and tart. Used up the last of our rhubarb and swapped hazelnuts for porridge oats. I also left out the cinnamon because it's hated by one of my offspring. (Next time I'll use hazelnuts and cinnamon).

Very quick and easy to put together, replaced hazlenuts in the crumble with oats which worked well. Delicious results, will use this recipe again.

Please remember that not everybody has a food processor!Alternatively put the hazelnuts in a plastic bag or wrap in a towel and bash with a rolling pin until crumbly, great fun for the children to do.

Made this last night, really is amazing! I'd cooked the rhubarb separately the night before, so just added it in once the pears were cooked. I also quartered the pears to make it easier to cut out the cores. Will definitely make again :)
