Rhubarb Sauce

Jun 13, 2013

I've made a couple batches of this sauce already this year, and it's only June! I just actually came in from cutting off the seed pods from my rhubarb so hopefully it keeps growing. Last year was the first year I didn't freeze chopped rhubarb, and I so regretted it. I love rhubarb crisp, and it was a looooong long winter, and even longer since I didn't have my rhubarb!

So this year I plan on freezing lots, as long as my rhubarb cooperates anyway! Or else I will just make lots of this!


This rhubarb sauce is pretty simple, and pretty amazing. You can use it for lots of things. I like mine over vanilla greek yogurt, and sprinkled with homemade granola. You can also eat it warm over ice cream, or add some bbq sauce to it and bbq pork chops or chicken with it. Pretty versatile hey!

Depending on how tart your rhubarb is you can add anywhere from 1 cup of sugar or 2 cups or more I guess, its really up to you. If you aren't eating sugar, add honey. Both work, as long as you cook it long enough that it basically turns into a puree.

Ingredients (4 pints)
  • 16 rhubarb stalks, cleaned and chopped into 1/2 inch pieces (or enough for 8 cups)
  • 2 cups sugar (if you want the sauce more tart only add 1 cup)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
In a large pot add the chopped and cleaned rhubarb and sugar, let sit for 2 hours.
Once there is liquid in the pot, place over medium high heat and bring to a boil, stirring constantly.
Turn the stove down, and continue boiling for 5 minutes or until the rhubarb is broken down and soft.
Add vanilla and stir.
To can (Hot Pack)
Have sterilized jars and lids ready. Pour very got fruit into hot jars leaving 1/2 inch of headspace. Seal with hot lids. Cool jars on a tea towel over night. The lids should have vacuum sealed. If not, store in refrigerator and use shortly.
- I usually use my canner and process them for 15 minutes.
