Sometimes I get such a craving for rhubarb, even when I’m not pregnant. I see it on the shelf at the grocery store and I just have to buy it. Ben doesn’t like it (too sour) so it is all mine! This isn’t much of a recipe, but I thought I would share how I make it.

Rhubarb sauce in a bowl

Rhubarb Sauce

This wonderful rhubarb sauce is easy to make and delicious enough to eat all on its own!


  • Rhubarb, roughly chopped
  • Sugar to taste (I tend to go heavy, but start with a little because you can always add it after cooking)






  1. Cook on medium-low heat, stirring frequently, until soft and saucy!

Verdict: Mom always made this with rhubarb fresh from her garden. I love it, but I think it is one of those things that people either love or hate.
Husband’s take: He doesn’t care for it; it is too sour no matter how much sugar is added.
Changes I would make: None.
Difficulty: Super easy.
