A simple recipe that tastes great as a topping on vanilla ice cream or pancakes. Also lovely in trifles.
Oh man, this recipe is amazing and is nothing like the rhubarb sauce I grew up with. There is so much added flavor with the OJ and vanilla extract. Any combination of berries would work with this "base" recipe. Thanks so much for sharing! - 30 May 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I was looking for a recipe for just rhubarb sauce but was unimpressed with the ones on this site. I used this recipe but used 4 cups rhubarb and no strawberries. Still used the 2/3 cups sugar, maybe a little more because of the extra tartness, and I didn't have plain orange juice so I used one of my kids fruit & veggie raspberry orange drinking boxes. It tasted AMAZING and snuck a few more nutrients in there too! I also blended mine after it was cooked and cooled because we like a smoother sauce. In my opinion the juice and the vanilla make this sauce as good as it is! Don't use those recipes that are just fruit and sugar. AWESOME recipe!! - 20 May 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This sauce is delicious and easy to make. I used frozen rhubarb because there was no fresh available yet and thus had to cook it a little longer. Mashed it with a potato masher and it was great. I didn't use any food colouring and it still looked beautiful in my pink depression glass pitcher and on the vanilla ice cream. Thanks! - 03 Apr 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
