I thought I'd like this one better. I'm a huge ginger fan, love cherries, and thought I really liked rhubarb. It's out of rhubarb season here as far as the grocery stores are concerned. I found out after I bought some puny stalks from Whole Foods that a close friend still had a producing rhubarb plant in her garden. Next time I poll the garden friends before trolling the grocery store.
The combined flavors just didn't work for me. The raw cherries were delicious, but their flavor was lost in the cobbler. The ginger came through strongly, but it just seemed odd. I'll give the rhubarb part of it a pass since mine was on the downward spiral by the time I got around to putting the cobbler together. I liked the topping except for the ginger aftertaste - I could see lowering the ginger or switching it out for something like cinnamon and/or clove.
All in all, I liked the Mixed Berry Cobbler from a few weeks ago much better. (But I love trying different things, so I'd still count this one a success!)
