Cherry Rhubarb Crumble

This cherry crumble is so quick and easy to make. It's a perfect finish to a summertime barbecue or picnic at the park. It's delicious served warm from the oven with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or may be served at room temperature or even cold from the refrigerator. The flavour of the cherries is enhanced by the almond extract and combines very well with the tartness of the rhubarb. Try to use rhubarb that's nice and red as it has the best flavour.
