Rhubarb Sauce with a Touch of Strawberries (Just Like Grandma’s!)


  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 4 cups chopped rhubarb  add ½ cup strawberries  (Variation: use more strawberries & less rhubarb)
  • 3/4 cup white sugar

In medium saucepan, melt butter over med/high heat.  Stir in rhubarb and sugar and continue to cook, stirring constantly, until tender, 5 to 10 minutes. If you need to thicken it mix 1 Tbsp. corn starch with 1/4 cup water and stir into hot mixture and cook 3- 4 more minutes until thick.

Serve warm over Sturdiwheat Shortcake with a dollop of whipped cream or ice cream.
