I love rhubarb sauce but this recipe is so much better then the plain sauce I'm use to. I hijacked this recipe from Dreamer in Ontario. It is the filling from her Rhubarb Crisp Squares recipe. I just added more zest when I made it. I also made directions for cooking it using fresh rhubarb. It tasted so good that I just had to post it as a sauce recipe.

Directions

  1. Combine rhubarb, sugar, cornstarch and zest in a saucepan.
  2. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, for 5 minutes or until mixture has thickened.
  3. Serve hot or cold.
  4. If using fresh rhubarb:.
  5. Add 1/8 cup water to rhubarb in saucepan, cover with lid and cook.
  6. When it has cooked down, mix cornstarch with 2 T of water and whisk into rhubarb.
  7. Add sugar and zest.
  8. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, for 5 minutes or until mixture has thickened.

Very nice. I loved the addition of the orange zest. Actually, what I used was the zest of a mandarin orange but it still was wonderful. Thank you so much!

Made for Family Picks ZWT4 – I love Rhubarb any way I can get it, this sauce was poured over pancakes this morning, great flavor. The added zest was great, and not a too sweet sauce either. Thanks CharlotteJ.
