I found this to be more of a sauce than a pudding. It was sweet tart which somehow didn't quite work for me. I'm thinking that is might be nice on some swedish pancakes or ice cream or something, but wasn't excellent by itself.

This was a nice way to use up some of the rhubarb from the garden, but I would need to tweak it when making it again. It came out quite sweet, so I didn't need to sprinkle any sugar on top. I would probably reduce the amount of sugar when cooking this. Also, the texture was on the thin side, so I would probably reduce the amount of water as well. I used a mixture of raspberries, marionberries, and blueberries. Thanks for sharing this unique recipe. Made for ZWT6 by a RedHot Renegade.
