  • ¼ cup fresh or frozen raspberries
  • ½ cup water
  • ¼ cup sugar

  • Ready In

  1. Combine rhubarb, raspberries, water and sugar in a medium nonreactive saucepan. Cover and cook over medium heat until rhubarb is very tender, 10 to 15 minutes. Stir in vanilla. Serve warm or cold.
  • Make Ahead Tip: The sauce will keep, covered, in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
  • Keep food fresh: If you’re storing food in your fridge for a few hours or more, it’s best to keep it in an airtight container or in a container covered tightly with foil. Foil is best at creating a barrier that doesn’t let unwanted flavors in (or out) while you store your food.

Strawberries instead of raspberries - YUM! We really enjoyed this sauce! This week we received fresh rhubarb in our CSA and having never made anything with it before I tried this. I substituted a quart of strawberries for the raspberries since both rhubarb and strawberries are in season locally. A great topping for vanilla ice cream or shortbread with cut strawberries. I also used a hand mixer to puree it as the last step. Probably didn't need the full 1/2c. of sugar which I should have known because I find eatingwell.com recipes are usually a little too heavy on it. Enjoy! Pros: easy Cons: calls for too much sugar

Adding more raspberries add more complexity to the flavor. Terrific topping on cheesecake.
