  1. In a saucepan over medium heat, stir together the cornflour and sugar. Stir in the water. Cook, stirring constantly, until thick and bubbly. Stir in the cherries and almond extract. Set aside to cool.
  2. Preheat the oven to 180 C / Gas mark 4.
  3. In a medium bowl, mix together the flour, oats, brown sugar and salt. Rub in butter until the mixture is evenly crumbly. Press 1/2 of this mixture into the bottom of a 22x33cm (9x13 in) baking dish. Spread the rhubarb over the base, then spread the cherry mixture over the rhubarb. Stir the chopped nuts into the remaining crumb mixture, and sprinkle over the top of the fruit.
  4. Bake for 40 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the top is crisp and golden. Serve warm topped with custard or ice cream.
