Rhubarb Sauce


This sauce is a bit tart but oh so yummy on cakes and pancakes.

Cut up the rhubarb into 1/2 inch slices or so.

~Sarah chopping the rhubarb.~



We ended up with about 5 cups of sliced rhubarb. Place in saucepan and add 3 T. honey and 3 T. sugar. (We had brown sugar.) Cook over medium heat, when it starts boiling, turn it down low and take the cover off to let some of the water cook off. (You don't need to add any water.)

~I pour it into a canning jar and store in the refrigerator just like I would applesauce.~

That's it. So simple and so yummy!
What are you harvesting and cooking or baking from what is available now?
Warm wishes, Tonya

  2. Tonya, my family visited my mom yesterday and we harvested rhubarb and made a strawberry rhubarb pie. The topping sounds similar to what you made, it was incredible!

  3. Just yummy! Yesterday I was given some nice homemade rubarb jam. It is delicious. The whole family has been enjoying it. I grow herbs and I have been using my lemon balm for tea this summer~also for making soap. I am really good at growing herbs. My husband is better with the flower, veggie and fruits. I know he has some tomato plants out there and I will be making sauce soon for my Italian dishes. We try to grow strawberries every year and also 3 or 4 kinds of veggie plants. We have a very small yard so we are limited with space right now. Blessings,Rose

  6. I grew up eating stewed rhubarb and wish I could figure out what my mom did. Anyone have a recipe for stewed rhubarb? I wonder if your sauce is similar. I will have to give it a try. Thanks for sharing. It looks delicious.

  11. Yum. All the blogs I'm reading today have a food theme. I'm getting hungry. This would go nicely with the raspberry muffins I just read about & the vanilla pudding I'm craving. (I'm pregnant. lol)

  13. Wow I'm seeing rhubarb everywhere these days. I have to get some to make some nice recipes. I remember as a kid, I used to dip the sticks in sugar and just eat them up ;)
    Thanks for visiting my blog today. Yours is wonderful ;)

  14. When I was a little girl, we would visit my aunt. She had rhubarb growing, and we loved to taste its sweetness! I haven't had rhubarb in years. Right at this minute, I'm tasting it in my head.

    Such a sweet treat.

    BTW, I love your life philosophy of simple living. I also love Vermont. It's such a beautiful place.

  16. So delicious! I love rhubarb and finally have some growing in my garden. We are picking raspberries now. The kids wake up early to pick them and make little tartes and cakes, which I bake for them. I love this season!
