Expert Tips

Rhubarb varies in sweetness, so add sugar to taste. Besides making a great side to meats and poultry, this sauce also can be served for dessert, either by itself or over pound cake or ice cream.

Substitute 1 cup strawberries, cut in half, for 1 cup of the rhubarb. After simmering rhubarb, stir in strawberries; heat just to boiling.
