Simple Rhubarb Sauce
  • 8 stalks of rhubarb
  • Cut off the ends of the rhubarb and rinse well. Chop rhubarb into 1 inch pieces.
  • ¼ cup of water
  • Place rhubarb pieces in a large saucepan and add water. Cover and cook over high heat until soft, about 10 minutes.
  • 1 ½ - 2 cups of sugar, to taste
  • Reduce heat to medium high and add sugar, ½ cup at a time stirring to incorporate completely. Taste periodically and add sugar as desired. Total sugar required depends both on your taste and on the tartness of the rhubarb.
  • Remove from heat and pour into a glass bowl or other container. Cover with plastic wrap and chill for at least one hour before serving. Keeps for up to a week in the refrigerator.
