Rhubarb Sauce

This is a very easy rhubarb sauce recipe and it is very good! Start with approx. 10-12 pieces of rhubarb.


Cut the rhubarb into 1 inch pieces

Place it in a heavy sauce pan with one cup of sugar and stir to blend

Place pan over medium heat. put a lid on the pan. Add nothing other than rhubarb and sugar.

Soon the rhubarb will give off liquid. Continue to cook and stir once or twice.

Cook until the rhubarb breaks down. Then continue to cook until it thickens a bit. It continues to thicken as it cools.

Remove from heat and transfer to jars.


Tighten lids and voila! Eat on toast or over cake or ice cream. Will last in the refrigerator for up to 3 weeks.
