      Delicious! Just what I was looking for. I had some frozen rhubarb that I was wanting to use up and was craving a tart topping for vanilla ice. This recipe fit the bill perfectly. Thanks for posting!

      I completely love this recipe! It's both sweet and tart, and it was so good. I think I may have overcooked it though, because it turned out mushy, but it was too good!

      I would have gone with 4 stars but my better half was scarfing this down so fast I had a heck of a job getting a portion! 5 Stars when he gets that enthused. :) I made it as directed but for my personal taste I would either reduce or eliminate the vanilla. DH says don't mess with it. lol I pulled a few pieces of rhubarb out just before the thickening process mostly for the picture but I do like a few 'chunks' in mine. It's a keeper. Thanks for posting!
