Rhubarb Sauce With Zest

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Charlotte J

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.

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!
