Strawberry Rhubarb Crunch

(originally made 6/2006 and just about every June since! It works with sugar free jell-o, and I've also used a combination of cut up strawberries and rhubarb)

Got this cooling on top of the stove and I had to sneak a taste. WOW! I've never made anything with rhubarb before, but DFIL gave us some to try. Very very goood!
