Rhubarb Sauce Your Way

Rhubarb Sauce Your Way

Rhubarb sauce is easy to make, and you can tailor it to your time and taste. Use only rhubarb or add in fruit, a jalapeno, or even fresh ginger for some added layers of flavor. Use it to top cake, pie, or ice cream—or drizzle it on a dessert plate for a dramatic presentation of your latest baked dessert! By the way, rhubarb sauce can also be an excellent savory sauce for roasted chicken, beef, or lamb.
