35 mins
  • Clean 1 pound of rhubarb and cut into 3/4 to 1 inch pieces. This should produce approximately 3 cups of rhubarb.
  • Combine sugar and water in a saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat and stir until sugar has dissolved. Add the rhubarb and bring sauce back to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook uncovered until rhubarb is crisp-tender, approximately 10 to 15 minutes.
  • Taste to see if sauce is the desired sweetness. If it requires additional sugar, add 1 or 2 tablespoons at a time and bring sauce back to a boil to be sure sugar dissolves.
  • Remove from the heat when sauce is at desired sweetness. Serve warm or cold. The sauce can be eaten on its own or it can be served as a topping on other food, such as cake, ice cream, pancakes, and waffles.

"I made this sauce a couple of weeks ago. I added a couple more tablespoons of sugar because I don't like sour things. We had it as an ice cream topping and it was delicious. My kids won't eat it but I had my mom and dad try it and they both really liked it. My dad wanted me to give the recipe to Mom."

"I wasn't sure I would like rhubarb prepared like this but I used brown sugar rather than white sugar and it was great. We ate it over angel food cake."
